Black Men Being Great Once Again- 100% of College Seniors Accepted


Here’s some news you won’t see widely reported:

For the sixth year in a row, every senior at Urban Prep’s Englewood West and Bronzeville campuses has been accepted at four-year colleges and universities.

Urban Prep Academies is a nonprofit organization founded in 2002 by education entrepreneur Tim King and a group of African-American education, business and civic leaders. Their goal is to “change the narrative” about how young Black men are portrayed here in the U.S. and worldwide.



The motto at Urban Prep is “We Believe”, and I think it’s definitely fitting given all that they’ve accomplished over the last ten plus years. The Englewood campus is located in Chicago, IL.

Via Urban Prep’s Website:
