My Students

Our student-athletes strive to meet the school's mantra of scholarship, discipline, and honor as they work toward success in high school but ultimately reaching their goal of college graduation. Our athletics programs seek to serve them on their journey by providing high-quality experiences that push them to be their best.

Our school serves mostly Hispanic and African-American students in the city of Chicago, with the majority receiving free breakfast and lunch.

Despite these circumstances, our students show curiosity, optimism, grit, and joy in overcoming the difficulties they face in their neighborhoods and lives. Our school graduates 100% of our scholars and also sends 100% of our scholars to college. Our goal is college graduation and each of our programs is designed to help our students achieve that goal, even though many of them would be first-generation college students.

My Project

Our football team needs new footballs for the upcoming football season. Our current footballs are years old and are worn down from much wear and tear of previous seasons.

New footballs are crucial to be used as game balls for our home games this season.

Without new footballs, our old, worn footballs will be difficult to grip and use especially in inclement weather. With a new set of footballs, our student-athlete game experience would improve a ton. The visiting team also relies on us at our home games to provide quality footballs, which we are in desperate need of. We appreciate your support!
