Our Mission

ReGeneration Schools is a non-profit school turnaround organization that's dedicated to revitalizing failing schools through a college prep and character mission. We currently manage a network of six schools on three CICS campuses in Chicago, IL.

The mission of ReGeneration Schools is to ensure that all children have equal access to high quality, college preparatory education. That's right: college for all children, no exceptions.

ReGeneration Schools prepares all students to enter and succeed in college through effort, achievement and the content of their character. All students demonstrate excellence in reading, writing, math, science and history while consistently exemplifying the virtues of respect, integrity, diligence, responsibility, compassion and perseverance.


Our Design

Low-income students deserve the same quality education as their wealthier peers. We’re dedicated to closing the achievement gap because we believe the only way for our society to build a better democracy is by rebuilding America’s failing schools.
