Chicago Public Schools Activities

This website illustrates the depth of the partnership between Chicago Public Schools (CPS) and the University of Illinois System (Urbana-Champaign, Chicago, and Springfield) in the number and scope of programs offered by the University System with the faculty, students, and staff of CPS. Many of the programs listed here include outreach across the state of Illinois but all have some component offered with CPS. They range in scope from early childhood literacy, to summer camps for high school students, to scholarships for college.

The list is as complete and current as the information we have, and the website is under frequent refinement as programs evolve. Please contact us with suggestions for additions or corrections.
