Meet Our Scholars

All Pass With Flying Colors’ scholars will be in the first generation in their families to graduate college.

Pass With Flying Colors serves public school students from across Chicago beginning in their freshman year of high school at CICS Northtown Academy. PWFC’s scholars live in 13 different Chicago communities including Albany Park, Jefferson Park, Portage Park, Rogers Park, Logan Square, Belmont Cragin, Greater Grand Crossing and Austin. Our scholars reflect the diversity of these communities: 65% identify as Hispanic/Latino, 11% as Asian, 9% as African American, and 15% as another race. Among our scholars, 85% are low-income and will require significant financial aid support to achieve their college degree.
