The mission of North Lawndale College Preparatory Charter High School (NLCP) is to prepare young people from under- resourced communities for graduation from high school with the academic skills and personal resilience necessary for successful completion of college.
NLCP asks students to hold themselves to a higher standard. Having high expectations for themselves will yield results for everyone. To that end, our curriculum is demanding in preparation for life in college and beyond. We believe the real world starts now.
Every student works on an extended research project, every year. Pushing limits, while learning how to think deeply and write persuasively, is an important skill no matter where their academic careers may take them. Students go on visits to colleges, spend summers at leadership camps and work with mentors from Chicago’s business community.
Volunteering is a great way to make an impact on the life of an NLCP student. Last year 200 volunteers worked directly with NLCP students in a number of different roles, including mentoring a Senior Project, judging a Senior Project, or hosting a Lunch & Learn opportunity.
