Beth Carrera Napleton

THE STORY:

From my first year teaching way back in September 2000, I realized instantly how much of the achievement gap in this country is caused by a gap in life experiences. Students from middle-class and more affluent communities frequently have opportunities to ride the Ferris Wheel at the fair, go to tall buildings and experience escalators and elevators and see the world from different perspectives--what the world looks like from a shoreline, or from the Willis Tower. In the meantime, kids from lower income communities are often limited by circumstance and lack of family funds to the few blocks surrounding their home.

So, after taking the Third Grade to Washington at PS 132 and chaperoning dozens of trips all over the country while at Gaston College Prep, I made sure that a foundational aspect of the school I founded, Chicago Collegiate, is to ensure our students not only have access to the rigorous academics they are entitled to, but also to the life experiences that will help prepare them for college--whether that's seeing a play or having dinner in a nice restaurant. 

Every year students earn end of the year trips, overnight, multi-day opportunities to experience life outside Roseland. They are a highlight of the year, and of a student's Collegiate experience. Your support today means helping hundreds of kids sleep in a dorm room, check out what the broader Midwest is like and make memories to last a lifetime!

Thank you for your support!
