“By implementing the values I learned from Chicago Scholars into my future career, I hope to be able to create change.”
-Christeena Jojo | Class of 2022 | Future Medical Student
Our work is about more than getting into college. At Chicago Scholars, we stick with our Scholars from the start of the college admissions process through their first job after graduation and beyond. Even more important, we’re committed to bringing our values to everything we do, even if it means building a new initiative to make it happen.
Chicago Scholars are academically ambitious, first-generation college-going students who live and attend high school in Chicago. When these students persist through our seven-year program, they not only get through college — they build futures where they can truly thrive.
