DeVry Education Group Statement On Senator Durbin’s Letter To Illinois High School Principals

DeVry Education Group institutions have a long, successful history of empowering Illinois high school graduates to pursue their higher education and career goals. Our flagship institution, DeVry University, was founded in Chicago in 1931 and has over 47,000 Illinois alumni, many of them products of Chicago Public Schools (CPS) and other Illinois high schools, who are working for companies such as AT&T, Boeing and IBM. More than 350 CPS graduates earned their undergraduate degree from DeVry University in 2013.

In fact, DeVry University partners with CPS on its DeVry University Advantage Academy, a CPS high school that is celebrating its 10-year anniversary this year. The Advantage Academy, which was created with then-CEO of CPS Arne Duncan, gives students the opportunity to earn an associate degree while still in high school – all at no cost to the student or their family.

Since 2004, the Advantage Academy has a 94 percent high school graduation rate and an 85 percent graduation rate for its associate degrees. And 85 percent of its graduates go on to continue their higher education. In 2012, Chicago Magazine ranked the Advantage Academy No. 8 among their top 15 high schools in all of Chicago.

The facts, and our history, demonstrate our commitment to Illinois students and their success in higher education. We encourage the senator to visit our Chicago campus, and our Advantage Academy, so that he can learn firsthand how we serve our students.
