Our mission is to expose scholars to exceptional experiences that prepare scholars to succeed in and graduate from college by delivering rigorous academic instruction in partnership with parents while providing social and emotional support to scholars and families.  Our vision is to become a top-performing school in the city of Chicago with 100% of our scholars matriculating to a high performing high school to (and be prepared for success in college and/or career readiness) graduate from college in order to disrupt generational poverty.
