Noble students, families, and staff,
Twenty years ago, Noble opened its doors and welcomed 126 students at its first campus. Today we serve thousands of students and families across Chicago, 1,300 staff members and over 12,000 alumni. Noble’s positive impact in our city is unparalleled, which makes the opportunity to now serve as Noble’s next CEO a tremendous blessing that I do not take for granted.
In this moment of transition, I commit to you that we will never lose the things that make Noble the place you choose to send your students, the place you choose to teach and lead. As we look toward the next twenty years, I am eager to continue this great work with you to make Noble even stronger and better for the many people we serve. Thank you for your trust and belief in my leadership.
I look forward to writing the next chapter of this story with you. Thanks for all you do, always.
Chief Executive Officer
Noble Network of Charter Schools
Join Noble Today to provide students with a high-quality education that will prepare them for success in high school, college, and beyond.
Here, you will be part of Chicago’s largest and highest-performing network of charter schools.
A diverse workforce is critical to ensuring our students receive the best education possible. That is why Noble has put a premium on nurturing an inclusive culture where employees with wide-ranging backgrounds and qualities are engaged and connected.
Noble was founded on many of the same entrepreneurial principles that have built successful businesses—strong leadership, meaningful use of data, and a high degree of accountability. With longer class periods, a longer school day, and a longer school year, Noble provides students with substantially more instructional time than the traditional Chicago public high school. This extra time, combined with a disciplined, consistent school culture, high expectations, and a team of dedicated teachers, results in dramatically improved academic performance.
Because success is the only option for our students, we operate on culture of high expectations - for academics, for behavior, and for our students' futures. We know that college is crucial for future success, so everything we do is to prepare our students for that next step. Academic rigor is the norm and discipline and accountability are a part of daily life for students. We believe that by 'sweating the small stuff' and pushing our students to reach their full potential, we are building the skills, knowledge, and behaviors needed to be successful in college and in life.
We know the biggest predictor of our students' academic success is the quality of the adults in the building. That's why we work tirelessly to recruit, hire, and support the best educators in the country. And we know they work tirelessly to ensure that every student has the resources they need to be successful. We give our teachers the freedom to innovate in the classroom, access to transparent data so they can analyze their performance, and we compensate our teachers and school leaders for results. This is why our schools rank as the top performing high schools in Chicago on ACT scores and academic gains.
Our commitment to students’ success extends through college. Alumni Coordinators at each campus provide academic and financial aid advising and workshops, mentoring, networking and counseling for alumni as they adjust to college life.
Through the Summer of a Lifetime program, low-income, minority scholars of the Noble Network are provided funding and support to participate in life-changing, summer academic enrichment programs on college campuses nationwide.
Summer of a Lifetime founder, Michael Milkie, and a Hansberry Summer of a Lifetime participant appear on Fox Chicago to speak about the program and its impact on our students. Watch here:
