A Charter School Success Story

Recently a friend sent me this inspiring link to a story about a Charter school in Chicago.

Urban Prep Academy for Young Men had a goal to have every student accepted to college — and they did it!  It seems one of the strengths of successful charter schools is being able to identify clear goals and then putting all their energy and resources into making it happen. Many charter schools have the same goal as Urban Prep: to get every student into college.  By making college acceptance the goal they ensure that goals in literacy, math, science, etc. will be in place.  College may not be the path for everyone but it should be a realistic option.
