ABOUT NCLB EVENING HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAMS
NCLB refers to the federal No Child Left Behind law. The NCLB Evening High School (EVHS) Program is designed to provide current CPS students with the academic coursework required to earn a high school diploma.
Last year, more than 4,000 students received their high school diplomas due to their participation in the
NCLB Evening High School Program.
Course offerings vary by location and are available in the evenings and on Saturdays to provide flexible
options for students wishing to recover credits. Taught by highly qualified and certified teachers, the
courses cover core content in a variety of subjects including English, science, mathematics, social studies,
foreign languages and fine arts.
