We are a small, private Christian high school on the Near North Side of Chicago, serving students whose needs have not been met by other high schools, and whose dreams and talents are in danger of being wasted. Our primary aim is to work with students who began high school elsewhere, but now need a fresh start.
The school’s purpose is to advance the intellectual, vocational, and spiritual experiences of these students.
Founded in 1994, we created a model that provides an old-fashion, one-room-school-house-like education for students desiring an educational setting that is more personalized.
Finally, somewhat uniquely, we also require students to hold a job for three months (averaging 12 hours of work a week) before graduation.
