Mount Carmel High School, an all-boys Catholic high school in the Woodlawn neighborhood on the South Side of Chicago, is considering whether it should admit girls.
The school has been an all-boys school for about 122 years, reports The Chicago Tribune.
“Since 1900, Mount Carmel has built a legacy of educating young men from a wide variety of backgrounds," the school says on its website. "Thus, 122 years later, school leaders feel strongly that it is time to proactively consider whether and how to offer that same opportunity to...young women."
Mount Carmel enrolls about 600 students.
The school will make its final decision on August 9 and 10 when the board of directors meet.
