On December 5, 19 freshmen traveled to Lake Forest College (LFC) for a tour of the campus and a multicultural panel discussion. Students toured the academic building where classes are held, dormitories, and the sports center. The multicultural panel was composed of current Lake Forest seniors, all originally from Chicago, to give their unique perspectives and advice about college. Our freshmen also visited the cafeteria and were able to eat alongside the student body. Some of the current students at LFC dined with the students and talked informally about student life and college experiences. They also discussed wellness and independence, as our students...
The Clemente JROTC Department recently had the distinct honor of hosting the Borinqueneer Congressional Gold Metal Alliance team. The team is seeking Congressional approval to bestow the Congressional Gold Metal upon the Latino veterans who served in segregated units. The ”Borinqueneers” were a group of highly trained Latino soldiers that served in the 65th Infantry Regiment from Puerto Rico. This was the only Hispanic-segregated Active Duty unit that played a prominent role in our American military history by participating in three US wars. Our students were given the opportunity to view a presentation that outlined the numerous successes that...
On Wednesday, October 9, 2013 something historic happened in our community. For the first time in 40 years, the faculty and staff of Roberto Clemente Community Academy took an educational walk down Paseo Boricua to learn about and become familiar with the community in which they teach. It was an incredible fall day when over 60 members of the teaching and support staff built community with each other while learning about the rich history that exists within Humboldt Park, with a strong emphasis on Paseo Boricua. The walk began with a purpose setting conversation with Principal Marcey Sorensen. She...

Roberto Clemente Community Academy is once again a Level 2 school per the CPS Performance Policy. Clemente attributes the success to comprehensive reform measures over the past two years. Major areas of improvement that contributed to the Level 2 score include: diminishing one-year dropout rates to 1.9%, increasing attendance to 81.5%, and supporting freshmen with a 89.0% on-track rate. Additionally, Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate enrollment more than doubled, and will continue to increase as the school adopts a wall-to-wall IB program. Congratulations, Wildcats!
