This past Thursday, March 6, the UChicago Charter School Woodlawn Campus (UCW) held its annual College Celebration, strengthening a college-going culture that has flourished since the establishment of UChicago Charter’s College Graduation Office. UCW students of all grades packed the gymnasium for the celebration’s kickoff, which featured singing and step dance performances from their fellow classmates. 

Newly accepted college-bound seniors lined up to take a victory walk as their college adviser read out the list of institutions seeking our students to join their freshman class. Seniors were cheered on by their classmates, teachers, and counselors as the entire campus celebrated their academic achievement. Congratulations to all of our newly accepted seniors — we can’t wait for more to come!
