We partner with families and community stakeholders to cultivate a web of support for students that clears a path to and through college. The mission of North Lawndale College Preparatory Charter High School is to prepare young people from under-resourced communities for graduation from high school with the academic skills and personal resilience necessary for successful completion of college.

Students enrolled in North Lawndale College Prep have an opportunity to be a part of the Phoenix Pact. The Phoenix Pact is a program that makes it possible for graduates of NLCP to go to college where they are most likely to succeed, rather than having to settle for colleges they can afford. The Phoenix Pact awards scholarships so students can go to college with no out-of-pocket cost, it secures grants to limit loan debt and provides counselor support while in college.
