Ryan Banks Academy
In September 2018, Ryan Banks Academy, a new middle school and high school, will open its doors and transform urban education. The Ryan Banks Academy mission is to build Chicago’s first residential school for urban youth. In our first 1-2 years, we will begin as a day school/boarding school hybrid model, where our students attend day school at Ryan Banks Academy, plus our school year will include multiple extended field trips which will allow our students to explore new environments and cultures. Ryan Banks Academy will combine a high-quality, future-facing curriculum with an integrated social emotional education in order to provide the launching pad for students out of poverty and into the next generation of leaders, thinkers, and world-changers.
