Youth Connection Charter School (YCCS) opened in 1997 and is the only charter school in the State of Illinois that offers academic choices to students who have dropped out of traditional high schools, but show desire for a better future. YCCS is a tuition-free, public school program of Chicago Public Schools, and a partnership between Youth Connection Charter School, Malcolm X College, and K12 Inc. To qualify for admission into YCCS Virtual High School, students must be between 18 and 21 with 12 or more credits already completed toward achieving their high school diploma. In addition to the blended-learning program, YCCS Virtual High School provides students with many support services, including career counseling, academic counseling, mentoring, social service referrals, tutoring, job referrals and internships, and Students in Transitional Living Situations (STLS) services. Also, students may use all or part of the additional two hour per day instruction requirement to participate in the YCCS Virtual High School Work Study Program. Students must be approved to participate in this program and may earn up to 0.5 credit per semester for a maximum of one full credit per academic year.
