For the FIFTH year in a row, all of the graduates of Chicago’s Urban Prep Academy have been accepted into four-year colleges and universities.
While this school does not receive the proper coverage for their great accomplishments and contributions to the young men in its community, it has single handedly helped over 800 young men gain the necessary academic and life skills to succeed at the next level.
Graduates have gone on to attend top institutions including, Georgetown University, Cornell University, Northwestern University and Morehouse College.
NBA star Dwayne Wade of the Orlando Magic was so moved by the story that he donated $10,000 to offset the cost of prom for the graduating class.
This school is doing great thing for young men of color. Imagine if more schools took the same interest in our youth.
