History

High Jump was established in 1989 as a cooperative program at the Latin School of Chicago with input from the Francis W. Parker School and funding from the Lloyd A. Fry Foundation.

 

The academic enrichment program was established to ensure that access to competitive secondary school was not determined by lack of information, limitations of home schools and financial resources.

 

High Jump opened two additional campuses at the Francis W. Parker School (2012) and the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools (2014) to advance its mission to close the education opportunity gap in Chicago.

 

Since its founding, High Jump has continued to grow and enhance the long-term academic success of its students:
