Preparing Chicago students

for a future of growth and opportunity


We believe a stronger Chicago begins by expanding equitable opportunities for students through education because a college degree is the surest pathway out of poverty and the key to community and economic vitality.

We work to fight Chicago’s educational inequity: a reported 75% of CPS freshmen aspire to go to college but only 20% are projected to earn their bachelor’s degree within six years of enrolling in college. This translates to over 20,000 CPS students each year who will not earn their bachelor’s degree, creating an opportunity gap in a system where 78% of students come from an economically disadvantaged background.
