Pass With Flying Colors prepares Chicago’s under-served high school students to be successful in college.
PWFC is an eight-year college access and persistence program. During high school, PWFC students
participate in academic enrichment, leadership development and college readiness programs. PWFC students continue to receive personal support and mentoring during their college years so their college degree becomes a reality. PWFC students graduate from college at dramatically higher rates than their peers, with opportunity for economic stability and choices in their adult lives.
WHY PASS WITH FLYING COLORS?
Because the students deserve something more: a chance at a meaningful, well-rounded education in an
environment where they can explore, make decisions and thrive in a dynamic community. A chance to
realize their potential, "pass with flying colors," make positive choices, do great things in life,
and "pass it on," by becoming positive role models.
With YOUR HELP we can provide crucial resources, learning and mentoring opportunities that will wrap around the school day, complement instructional learning and provide social & emotional
By partnering with Chicago charter schools, and YOU, we will support a student-centered learning
environment, a cohesive curriculum, and better parental involvement, to help students go on to
have the choices they deserve. JOIN THE CAUSE.
