Youth Connection Charter School (YCCS) Virtual High School is designed to help students 17-21 who, for a variety of reasons, haven’t been able to finish their high school education. It combines online work, classroom work, and flexible hours into a unique high school learning experience that adapts to your schedule, to your situation, to your life.

YCCS Virtual High School is a Chicago Public School, so it’s Tuition-free

We’ll work with you from day one, and at every step along the way, to help you get to the finish line, and ensure you meet all the academic requirements you need to succeed—just like we did for these three students.

You’re not like everyone else. Neither are we.

No matter what’s gotten in your way, at YCCS Virtual High School we'll work with you to create an individualized plan for both high school and post high-school success:

  • To a community college or a four-year college
  • A strong vocational program that prepares you for a specific career
  • Or straight to a career that fits who you are

YCCS Virtual High School is Chicago's most flexible high school program.
