One of the goals established by the Board of Directors of the Catalyst Schools is expansion of the Catalyst Network. In 2006 the first school opened in North Lawndale at 1616 South Spaulding. The second school openend in 2007 in Austin at 5608 West Washington Blvd. Both schools have seen steady progress over the years.
The new Catalyst School, to open in the fall of 2012 with grades K - 5 and grade 9, will be a K - 12 seamless system of values based education for families who live on the south side of Chicago.
More than 60 General Electric employees volunteered at the Catalyst Schools -- Howland and Circle Rock -- to help with necessary facilities projects on May 6, 2011. They worked on skylights, tiled floors, painted, cleaned empty lots, and a great many other things during the course of their day at the schools. THANK YOU GE!
The Graduate Support team brought Catalyst-Circle Rock Charter graduates back to the school for a reunion and to encourage them to drive toward success and their ultimate goal which is graduation from college. Graduates enjoyed renewing friendships, a great lunch, and a program that offered both encouragement and guidance. Congratulations to Catalyst graduates who are pursuing their dream.
