Ryan Banks Academy is an independent and coeducational college-preparatory, residential, tuition-free middle and high school that will 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. Our vision is to provide our students with a state-of-the-art facility that is fully equipped with current technology and equipment to create an optimal learning environment.
We will serve Chicago students who are in 7th-12th grade. During our first year, Ryan Banks Academy will launch with a class of ten seventh grade students. Ryan Banks Academy will have the capacity to serve a total of 240 students between 7th-12th grades.
