Hales Franciscan High School (known simply as Hales) is a private 4-year Roman Catholic high school located in the Bronzeville neighborhood on the south side of Chicago, Illinois, United States. It is part of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago.
Since its founding, Hales Franciscan High School has celebrated African-American heritage and endeavored to instill cultural pride. Today, the school continues to be the only historically African-American, all-male, Catholic college preparatory high school in the state of Illinois and one of three such institutions in the nation. The school is a non-profit, independent high school, fully accredited by the North Central Association and certified by the Illinois State Board of Education. In the 2013-14 school year, the school became coed, but returned to an all-male student body for the 2015-2016 school year. On July 27, 2016, the school announced that the 2016-2017 academic school year would be suspended, due to low enrollment and financial struggles.
