Discovering Our City
#DiscoveringOurCity is Urban Prep’s annual all-school field trip that exposes high school students—many of whom have never been out of their south and west side neighborhoods—to the professional, civic, and cultural institutions that make Chicago great.
Urban Prep Academies operates a network of charter public high schools for boys in high need Chicago communities. 100% of Urban Prep’s graduates—all African-American males, mostly from low-income families—have been admitted to college.
Most important message of the day – “Believe in yourself!”
