About

Ombudsman Chicago offers students who have dropped out of CPS or need a fresh start to get back on track another option to earn a high school diploma. Since opening as a member of the Chicago Options School Programs in 2013, more than 5,000 students have attended the three Ombudsman Chicago campuses and more than 650 have graduated with a CPS diploma.

Classes are taught by caring, certified teachers. Students participate in blended learning through large and small group instruction, one-on-one support and computer assisted instruction.   All components of the learning model are required for students to complete their courses.  Students are supported by counselors, social workers and others who can help them reach their full potential. Students can enroll in any location, and tuition is FREE so there’s no cost to attend.

Students say Ombudsman Chicago “feels like home” and it’s easier to focus in a learning community where there’s no drama or distraction – and where there’s plenty of motivation.

Ombudsman Chicago, CPS and the communities we serve give students a second chance to meet their high school goals and to make positive choices about college, a career – about life – after high school.
