The Chicago Academy

Welcome to The Chicago Academy

As the city’s first contract school, we serve a dual mission as a neighborhood elementary school and CPS’s first school-based teacher preparation program for aspiring teachers. In lieu of a Local School Council, The Academy for Urban School Leadership serves as our governing board. The goal of the CPS-AUSL collaboration is to improve student achievement in Chicago Public Schools by attracting, training, and retaining Chicago’s next generation of exceptional teachers and school leaders.

The school day is 8 am to 3 pm.  Students should arrive between 7:35 and 7:55 am, and be ready to line up in their classrooms at 7:55 am.  Please remember that students should not be on school property before 7:35 am, as there will be no adult supervision provided prior to 7:35 am.

Students in K-8 may be dropped of in the circular drive of the parking lot.  Please remember that there is no parking in the drive, and use caution in during drop-off.  Safety for our children is the priority.
