We prepare motivated students from Chicago neighborhoods to graduate from college, enter into meaningful careers, and be the catalyst to bring positive change into their communities.

2019-01-08   Field Trip: Chicago Architecture Center

The first interdisciplinary unit of study in Humanities was called "The Heart of Chicago." In this unit, students read literature and historical documents relating to our great city, including "The House on Mango Street" and the Chicago Architecture Center's own publication "No Small Plans," a graphic novel about Chicago's past, present, and future. AS a culminating experience, our students visited the Chicago Architecture Center's exhibits and took a walking tour highlighting some of Chicago's rich architectural traditions.
