Mission Statement

Legal Prep is Chicago's first and only legal themed high school in the underserved neighborhood of West Garfield Park that uses law curriculum to engage low-income students in critical thinking, civic participation, and meaningful relationships with professionals .

Description

Legal Prep is an open enrollment school - students are not required to take any tests to gain admission to Legal Prep. Any current eighth grade student in the city of Chicago is invited to submit an application. If more students apply than we have room for, Legal Prep will hold a blind lottery to determine who will be invited to attend. Students with special needs are invited to apply.

Legal Prep recruits top educators from Chicago and across the country to prepare our students for college success. The Legal Prep team is united in its belief that every Legal Prep student is college-bound. Legal Prep teachers have experience achieving impressive student growth in their previous classrooms.

Legal Prep offers a broad range of athletics, clubs, and after school programs. Legal Prep will field teams to compete in soccer, basketball, volleyball, lacrosse, baseball, softball and other sports in which the students express an interest. Dance, spoken word/poetry, theatre, mock trial, debate, and student government clubs are offered to make sure students have a wide range of extra-curricular activities options.
