CCSC @Night provides up to 30 students in grades 9-12 with a quiet place to do their homework, access laptops, and a free dinner. CCSC @Night meets on Tuesdays from 5 to 7 PM. CCSC teachers serve as proctors but do provide one-on-one tutoring. Sometimes volunteers from the community are available to help students with homework.
Why CCSC @Night is important to the school’s mission:
- Many of our students do not have a good study space at home where they can do homework without distractions. Our academic program is rigorous, and all students carry a substantial workload. All homework is expected to be completed when due, or students face consequences.
- Many of our students come from low-income families where eating a healthy, freshly prepared dinner is not always possible (50+% on federal free/reduced priced meal program compared to about 40% in CPS).
We are grateful to Community Cooks, a network of volunteer cooks and professional chefs who donate their services, for helping to provide dinner for students.
