Big Congrats to the 2012 Graduates!

Chicago’s Urban Prep Academy (an all-male charter school) just pulled a THREE-PEAT announcing that ALL of their graduating seniors have been accepted into four-year colleges!

Some folks have no faith in the educational system, but Urban Prep Academy on Chicago’s south side must be doing something right. Once again, 100% of its 2012 graduating seniors are …heading off to college in the fall. And by the way, this school is the only all-Black, all-male public prep school in Chicago!

This is the third year in a row that the school has achieved the feat thanks to hard working teachers and parents and of course…the amazing students.

The school started with kids whose futures had been left for dead by their public schools: Only four percent of the school’s incoming freshmen were reading at grade level when they arrived on campus.
