Organized by Concept Schools

Concept Schools is a Chicago-based, not-for-profit charter school management organization with 30 charter schools in the Midwest states. Concept Schools’ focus is to create and operate charter schools that provide students with the knowledge, skills, and character to succeed in college, the workplace, and life—with special emphasis on entering college degree programs and careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields.
