Chicago’s Urban Academy for the fourth year in a row is sending ALL of their graduates to college!!

Founded in 2002, the all boys charter school had only four percent of students reading at their grade level when they opened. 85% were from low-income families.

Chicago has been in the news recently with over 25 people shot and wounded this past Easter weekend.

Mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel spoke of the achievement saying,

“What this 100 percent proves beyond a doubt is that it need not be the exception but it should be the expectation for every child in the city of Chicago.”
