Polaris Charter Academy – where learning has no boundaries. The mission of Polaris Charter Academy is to educate students to be self-motivated, creative, critical thinkers, with the ultimate goal of shaping life-long learners and citizens with a strong sense of personal and civic responsibility.

Climate Cycle inspires students to green our world by reducing our environmental footprint while enhancing personal health. This Chicago non-profit partners with Chicago area schools, administrators, teachers and students to create and implement environmental curriculum and projects in K12 schools. Climate Cycle helps students understand climate change and global warming, how it impacts their lives, and what they can do to respond to global warming trends.
