Background
UIC College Prep High School (UICCP) opened its doors in Chicago in 2008. The school was established in partnership with the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) and is one of 10 campuses of the Noble Network of Charter Schools, a highly regarded local charter school network. The school's academic focus is on mathematics and science, with a special emphasis on the health sciences. UICCP’s curriculum includes four years of mathematics and science. It also includes a unique four-year health sciences program that is being co-developed by UICCP faculty members with faculty and staff from UIC’s six health sciences colleges—Applied Health Sciences, Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, and Public Health—as well as UIC’s Jane Addams College of Social Work. UICCP’s location within the Illinois Medical District enables the high school’s students to have regular interaction with UIC personnel, programs, and facilities, especially with the faculty, staff, and health professionals who work at the University of Illinois Medical Center. An in-school health clinic, which is located on UICCP’s ground floor and is operated by the UIC personnel, provides another, regular opportunity for the high school’s students and staff to interact with health care professionals. The school has quickly emerged as one of the city’s leading high schools, with 2011 ACT scores that were the highest in the city among all non-selective-enrollment schools. Ninety-five percent of the school's seniors this year have been accepted to a four-year university. UIC College Prep is one of 11 campuses of the Noble Network of Charter Schools, though the only one with a close partnership with a major university.
