NLCP’s mission is simple and unwavering: give young people what they need so they can earn a college degree.

“The mission of North Lawndale College Preparatory Charter High School (NLCP) is to prepare young people from under-resourced communities for graduation from high school with the academic skills and personal resilience necessary for successful completion of college.”

Helping our students achieve the dream of a college degree is our single-minded purpose. We start working with students on this endeavor the day they walk in as freshmen. And we continue working with them until they complete college, no matter how long that might take.
