Back of the Yards Campus PDF E-mail

San Miguel Schools Chicago was founded in 1995 in a convent dining room with 18 students, a staff of four, and a $50,000 pilot grant.

Today, the Back of the Yards Campus has become a model for urban education, providing opportunities to children and families most in need.

Located behind the historic Chicago Stockyards, the Back of the Yards neighborhood is home to a predominantly Latino population on the south side of Chicago.

The Back of the Yards Campus currently offers classes for 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. Students are accepted based on academic and financial need. During the 2009-2010 academic year, 98% of these students qualified for the government's free and reduced lunch program.
