NLCP is Number One in Chicago

NLCP is #1 among all charter and traditional Chicago Public High Schools when it comes to the percentage of our graduates in college. According to data just released by the National Student Clearinghouse, NLCP's class of 2009 had the highest percentage of our alumni enrolled in college the fall after their graduation. That is better than any charter high school; better than any neighborhood high school. These results put us in the company of the city's most elite high schools like Whitney Young and Northside College Prep – schools that admit only the top 5% of all students in the city.

But NLCP doesn't just want to be in this company – we want to LEAD this company. As terrific as this achievement is, we have our sights set on a grander goal: to lead the city in the percentage of our graduates completing college. Right now, 87% of the Class of 2009 is in college and they will be graduating in a few short years. Congratulations to this class, their parents, their teachers, and counselors!
