Community As A Campus
Promoting a culture of educational excellence!
The Humboldt Park “Community as a Campus” (CAAC) initiative was adopted by the Community Action Council of Humboldt Park Chicago and is an organic community plan conceived in 2009. The CAAC initiative will create an educational environment framed within the precepts of the International Baccalaureate academic standards, and transform all the schools within the designated area into “safe and inviting places to explore the world”. The CAAC seeks to create a community wide education pipeline from Pre-K to 16 that is supplemented with community wrap around services. The centerpiece of the CAAC initiative is the revitalization of Roberto Clemente Community Academy and the enhancement of the 11 elementary feeder schools.
