The University of Chicago Charter School A PreK - 12th Grade Superhighway to College

The University of Chicago Charter School was founded in 1998, when the University established the North Kenwood/Oakland campus. Donoghue was opened in 2005, followed by the Woodlawn campus in 2006, and the Carter G. Woodson campus in 2008.

Donoghue and North Kenwood/Oakland are elementary schools educating children from prekindergarten to grade five. Carter G. Woodson is a middle school, serving children from grades six to eight. Woodlawn is a secondary school educating students from grade six to twelve.

Together, the four campuses of the University of Chicago Charter School offer families a pathway to college for their children that begins with prekindergarten and continues through high school.
