June was full of excitement as Polaris celebrated the graduation of the Class of 2016! Crews from Kindergarten through 7th grade lined Sawyer Avenue between Ohio and Franklin to cheer on the 8th graders as they walked to George Westinghouse College Prep for the ceremony.
Where are they headed to now?
100% of Polaris graduates were accepted into Schools of Choice, which are schools beyond a student’s natural neighborhood options. Polaris students researched, applied to, and selected these schools based on their academic rigor, school culture, and the learning process provided.
Students planned to attend 2 dozen schools across Chicago in the fall of 2016. Schools include:
Jones College Prep
George Westinghouse College Prep
Rowe-Clark Math & Science Academy
North Lawndale College Prep
Rauner College Prep
Alcott College Prep
Christ the King Jesuit College Prep
Chicago Academy for the Arts
Urban Prep Academies
DRW Trading College Prep
Young Women’s Leadership Charter High School
Chicago Bulls College Prep
Congratulations Class of 2016!
Polaris Charter Academy is grateful to have made this journey with you. We wish you the best in high school, college, and beyond.
