LEAP Grant Award Celebration

The University of Chicago Charter School's Donoghue Campus has been awarded a $280,000 LEAP Innovations grant. This grant will allow Donoghue to roll out a personalized learning program to the entire campus in the 2016-2017 school year. The program allows teachers to partner with students and families to set goals based on students' individual academic needs and interests and guide them along their personalized learning pathways.

"We are evolving our approach to high quality education beyond the traditional idea that all students must learn the same way and at the same pace," said Donoghue Campus Director Errika Baker. "By empowering students to be leaders of their own learning and tailoring learning experiences to their interests, we ensure that all of our students develop the skills and mindsets they need to thrive in college and beyond."
