We believe we can get even better.

LEARN Charter School Network's commitment to providing underserved communities with a high-quality, college prep elementary education is unwavering.

Since opening our doors as a charter school in 2001, LEARN has grown from one school serving 110 students to a thriving Network of eight charter schools serving nearly 3,600 students in the Chicagoland area, including the city of North Chicago.

Fueled by an ambitious growth plan and supported by some of the most innovative funders in the sector including New Schools for Chicago, the Charter School Growth Fund, and the Walton Family Foundation, LEARN's mission remains crystal clear: To provide children with the academic foundation and ambition to earn a college degree. We have the exceptional opportunity to build a large network of charter schools and change the landscape of public education by graduating more eighth graders to college preparatory high schools and eventually, college.
