Peace and Education Accelerated High School is a small school in the Chicago Public School's Option's network. We provides a non-traditional educational opportunity for out-of-school youth, ages 16-21, who desire to achieve a high school diploma and a new chance to fully participate in the economic and social spheres of life through guidance and support. We believe that all students deserve to be surrounded by adults who believe in their unlimited, personal potential. We believe that every student deserves an educational environment that is welcoming and safe. We believe that every child deserves rich educational, career, and social-emotional guidance and support in order to define the pathways to the options he or she chooses.
