"When we founded Urban Prep, we wanted to increase the number of African-American males earning college degrees," said Tim King, founder and CEO, Urban Prep Academies. "Our record college acceptance, college enrollment, and college persistence rates demonstrate that we're changing the game. Consider this fact: one in twenty Black males from CPS enrolling in college since we graduated our first class is an Urban Prep alumnus—and that's just when we had one campus, now we have three. Our schools, our teachers, and our students are making a real difference in how Black males are perceived in our country. I couldn't be prouder."Urban Prep will host commencement exercises for this year's graduating seniors on June 7, 2013 at the UIC Forum.
