The mission of Chicago Collegiate is to equip ALL students in grades five through twelve with the academic skills, intellectual habits and character traits to succeed in college of their choice, strengthen their communities and change the world.

Our vision is to ensure 100% of our students complete college within six years of high school graduation.

Sending scholars to the college of their choice is central to our model. Scholars cannot graduate from our high school without a minimum of two letters of acceptance to a four year college or university, so that they can truly choose their next step.

When the Pride of 2021 enrolled at Chicago Collegiate in 2013, the college graduation rate in our neighborhood was 2%.

The time has come for us to take the next step in getting this number to 100%.

The Pride of 2021 earned over 200 college acceptances and over $3.6 million in merit-based aid as a class. They enrolled in college last fall.

Now, the Pride of 2022 is following in the Collegiate tradition of 100% college acceptance! With over 265 acceptances and over $1 million in merit-based aid already this spring, we have much to celebrate. Our annual benefit does just that and also helps us to raise the funds we need to achieve our mission and vision for ALL present and future Collegiate scholars.
