Passages Charter School

Passages Charter School Focused on the needs of immigrant & refugee students, Passages Charter School offers a tailored educational program focused on high academic standards.


Passages offers a rigorous, college preparatory curriculum that goes beyond state standards to enhance content mastery, skill development, and critical thinking. We expect every student to perform at or above grade level. Passages offers a longer school day and longer school year to ensure student success. Passages is currently ranked #14 overall among all charter schools in Illinois. It is one of only two charter schools in which 100% of students meet or exceed 8th grade reading levels, and ranks fifth among all charters in 6th grade math levels. In the Class of 2012, 90% of students were eligible for application to CPS selective enrollment high schools. Passages' curriculum is characterized by problem-based and experiential learning, NWEA Measures of Academic Progress, and the Paideia Teaching Strategy. Beyond excellent classroom academics, we feature:
-Enrichment programs for accelerated learners
Weekly art, Spanish, gym, and Character Education classes
-Free morning care daily, starting at 7:00 a.m.
-After school programs daily until 5:30 p.m.
-Partnerships with Ravinia Music Festival and Chicago Symphony Orchestra

Character Counts:

Today's children face a complex and troubling world sometimes filled with uncertainties. The traits that we hope to instill are neither readily apparent nor easy to grasp and put into practice. Our challenge is to provide young people with the self-esteem, energy, and knowledge necessary to survive, be successful and develop into strong, competent, caring, and responsible citizens. Passages utilizes the Character Counts program to teach character education, based on six ethical values that everyone can agree on — values that are not political, religious, or culturally biased:


The acronym TRRFCC reminds our students that people with good character are terrific.
