HFS Chicago Scholars helps economically disadvantaged Chicago high school students flourish in and out of the classroom by providing educational enrichment through our lifelong mentoring, college readiness and academic excellence programs, as well as providing financial assistance to attend top Chicago-area schools.
We provide the following to our scholars:
Financial assistance to attend top Chicago private high schools
Academic Directors dedicated to each high school class and one-on-one mentors
Four-year written commitment specifying performance expectations
College visits, selection, and admissions support
Our scholars respond to the opportunity by working hard to achieve success and unlock their long-term potential. Their achievements are astounding:
On average, over 90% of our scholars make the honor roll of the top schools in the city.
Our scholars are school leaders, serving as class officers, team captains and club presidents, and annually give over 4,000 hours to community service
100% of our graduates are accepted to and attend top colleges and universities, such as Harvard, Princeton, University of Illinois – Champaign, Loyola University, University of Michigan, Indiana University, Drake University, Loras College, and the University of Notre Dame.
Our high school graduates include three valedictorians and one salutatorian of four of the city’s top schools.
