100% Urban Prep Academies graduating seniors college-bound

While the city is in turmoil over school closings, Urban Prep Academy has set a shining example of education that is making a huge difference in the lives of Chicago's young men.
 
All of Urban Prep's graduating seniors - 167 young African American men - have been accepted to a four-year college or university. Both the senior class at the Englewood campus and the inaugural graduating class from its West campus will all be going to college.
 
These young men are defying the odds in our city, where fewer than 40% of African American males even finish high school.
