I am so proud of these young men , stories like this bring rash of tears
because this say we headed into a fullfilling future......All black youth not bad
gangbangers or dealers in jail or on a crime watch !

Just proud and to say 100% means everyone not a one was left behind
This is exciting, invigorating, inspiring, and certainly should be motivational for the young people in our communities, if only they would have this chance of an opportunity!!

I am rejoicing with and for these young brothers!

And I am proud for them and of them as their lives and goals continue to dispel the MYTH that there are more Black men in prison than in COLLEGE.

Continue to SHATTER those stereotypes, young brothers! :toast:

...and for those who thought the 1st year was a fluke, they DID IT AGAIN! :jumping:

Urban Prep Graduates All College-Bound For Fourth Year In A Row

Posted: 03/29/2013 5:26 pm EDT | Updated: 03/29/2013 5:51 pm EDT

For a remarkable fourth consecutive year, all 167 seniors at Urban Prep Academies schools have been accepted at four-year colleges or universities this fall.

Students of the two Chicago public charter high schools -- located in the city's Englewood and University Village neighborhoods -- gathered Thursday morning to celebrate the achievement of their schools, which some have dubbed "Hogwarts in the Hood" for their impressive, seemingly magical rates of success, CBS Chicago reports.

Still, Urban Prep's founder and CEO Tim King says, "the only magic going on at Urban Prep is the magic that these guys put in with their hard work and dedication.”

Some of the students at Urban Prep have overcome harrowing odds along their paths to college. Over the past several months, graduating senior Pravione Winding, 17, endured both the loss of his grandmother to cancer and his father to a fatal shooting during a dice game on the city's South Side in January, the Chicago Tribune reports.


All 167 graduating seniors of Chicago's Urban Prep Academies are college-bound for the fourth consecutive year.
