NLCP believes that whenever a child succeeds we can all celebrate, no matter what part we played—as a coach, teacher, mentor, or friend. And while statistics can’t tell the whole story, we think these numbers speak volumes about our school, our community, and our commitment to our mission.
- Since 2002, nearly 1,600 students have graduated from NLCP.
- Each year, approximately 80% of NLCP graduates enroll in college. The college enrollment rate for all Chicago Public High School graduates is 40%.
- Our graduates complete college at rates 4‐5 time the national average for low‐income students. (In a neighborhood where less than 6% of the population has college degrees, we think that’s quite an accomplishment).
- Our Girls basketball team placed 2nd in the 2016 Illinois Class 3A State Championship. Our Boys team advanced to the 2016 3A Sectional Final.
- NLCP students won an Emmy award in 2010 for collaborating with Free Spirit Media to produce a public service announcement about the negative impact of gun violence on communities.
- After college, NLCP Alumni enroll in law school, work for Fortune 500 companies and give back to their community as teachers and social workers.
