Educational Outreach Award Towards Excellence

Since our outreach program with CPS began in 1998, the “Award Towards Excellence“ has provided free French immersion to over 600 students from six CPS high schools. Outcomes for this diverse group, many from resource-challenged backgrounds, are compelling: over 90% go to college, most first generation.
