On behalf of the entire North Lawndale College Prep team, welcome to our school community. Here, you’ll find access to information about our academic model, culture of supporting the whole student, campus life snapshots, ways to get involved and more. I’m glad you’re here.
Frequently I’m asked “why NLCP?” when I meet with members of the community, speak with funders or visit with prospective families throughout Chicago. It’s a seemingly simple question, but one that always gives me pause.
It gives me pause because I’m so continually moved by the spirit of NLCP – its commitment to make every decision with fidelity to our mission – by the spirit of our students and by the spirit of our team and supporters. So many things make NLCP special – our academic model, focus on providing a web of support for students’ social and emotional growth and track record of preparing students for success in college and life.
So, if you’re already a part of our NLCP community – as a current faculty member, student or family member – welcome back and be sure to check out our new and improved website. If you’re new to NLCP and interested in learning more about what makes our network of public charter schools so special, enrolling your child for the 2020-21 school year or applying to join our elite team, I invite you to take a few minutes to explore all that we offer.
I know you have a choice in where you send your child to school, where you work and volunteer and where you give back. I am honored that you’re interested in learning more about NLCP.
Dr. Garland Thomas-McDavid
NLCP President and CEO
