Visit the University of Chicago Charter School

The Urban Education Institute invites you to experience the University of Chicago Charter School firsthand by taking a tour of the four charter school campuses. The UChicago Charter School serves approximately 1700 students on the South Side of Chicago from preK-12.

Campus visits take place monthly and rotate among the four charter school campuses. The visits themselves last approximately 90 minutes, during which you will have the opportunity to hear from a charter school leader (which is determined as the date of the visit nears) to learn about the charter school campuses and UEI at large, receive a tour of the facility and interact with students and faculty. These visits provide an in-depth perspective on UEI's work to improve teaching and learning in public school classrooms in Chicago and across the nation.
