UChicago is a champion for quality PreK-12 education for students throughout Chicago, and our educational outreach programs help to put youth on the path to successful, productive adult lives.

UChicago extends its core educational mission through our deep commitment to Chicago students, from pre-kindergarten through high school. We offer a range of programs designed to provide our city’s youth with the knowledge and skills they will need to succeed in college and beyond.

We provide mentoring, tutoring, and other academic support to help Chicago Public Schools students thrive in high school and prepare for college. We also operate a top-tier neighborhood charter school with three South Side campuses, and we work with educators to improve school quality and achieve better outcomes for students throughout the Chicago Public Schools system.

In addition, our civic leadership programs and community collaborations offer UChicago scholars and students deeper insights into urban issues while helping to build new generations of thoughtful, well-prepared community leaders.
