Percy L. Julian High School is one of nine high schools serving the Far South Side. Julian is a neighborhood school, however many students who do not live in attendance area enroll in the school to participate in our Career Technical Education Programs: Business, Gaming, Radio TV Broadcast, Medical Academy, and Digital Media. This year we will be adding JROTC for students interested in a leadership pathway. 

Julian is rated strong in the arts.  Recognitions have been received for the outstanding work of the Radio-TV Broadcasting Academy and Marching Band. The grade-level interdisciplinary service-learning program has received national recognition from the Education Commission of the States. Students have opportunities to participate in a variety of extra-curricular activities.  The support and engagement of community partners, including alumni, working with the school is strong.  

Percy L. Julian High School has been awarded accreditation by the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement, the Northwest Accreditation Commission and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement. Julian High School accreditation is recognized throughout the world.
