Chicago Collegiate

Starting in middle school, we partner with families to prepare scholars to be leaders, change agents, and set a positive trajectory for themselves, their families, and their community.

Through their experience with us, scholars are provided with rigorous academic attention to ensure rapid growth, opportunities for new experiences and visits to new places, exposure, guidance on the college path, individualized future preparation and planning, and wraparound social-emotional and need-based support services. We care just as much about social-emotional development and executive functioning skills as academic growth. Our program is designed for our scholars to be prepared to go on to have successful careers and a great life at 35 and beyond.

EVERY child has the potential to have the future of their choosing, and we will ensure they get there. To do this, we have strategically designed our schools to remain small enough to serve our scholars and families, and individuals and large enough to support a robust offering of academic courses and enrichment activities.

We go above and beyond your typical school. We do this without charging tuition or only enrolling selected students. We have graduated two classes of seniors, both of which have achieved 100% college acceptance. The Class of 2022 earned over 8 million dollars in financial aid and averaged over 11 acceptances per senior.
