Uplift Community High School is a college preparatory high school established in 2005. Located on the shores of Lake Michigan, in the diverse Uptown neighborhood, students have the ability to learn in an environment and high school unlike any other. Our beautiful facility and campus is located just blocks from Harry S. Truman College, one of the City Colleges of Chicago, where students can take college level courses during the school day. Students have the opportunity to request a modified class schedule that enables them to earn both high school and college credit simultaneously. Students also have the opportunity to earn credentials in our CTE teaching academy.
Our school was founded on the principles of social justice and we seek to produce graduates who are well informed and who have the ability to impact their communities, our city, our nation and ultimately the world for the greater good of humanity. Uplift students are game changers and have left their mark in society.
