Meet the Charter Schools Reception

Last week, INCS held our second “Meet the Charter Schools” Reception, which is part of the College for All Cooperative (CFA) and was designed to:

  • Introduce colleges/universities to charter public schools as a new market for college recruitment
  • Provide the opportunity for colleges/universities to learn about the distinctive character of individual charter schools that are part of CFA
  • Foster connections between colleges/universities and charter schools.

There were 34 representatives from 31 colleges and universities in attendance, from Illinois, the Midwest and beyond. The CFA schools that participated were: CICS Northtown, CICS Ralph Ellison, DuSable Leadership Academy, Youth Connection Charter School, Noble: Pritzker College Prep, Noble: Gary Comer Campus, UNO, Catalyst, Galapagos, Perspectives and Chicago Math and Science Academy. Thank you all for doing a great job of presenting your schools and for highlighting the distinctive traits that make charters so unique, innovative and focused on strong college-going cultures.
One college representative said that the highlight of the event was, “Actually meeting the people whom help shape students' futures. It is an impressive collection of some of the best and most passionate education providers I have ever met.”
