A year ago, when we wrote our business plan for Midwest Academy, we had a goal of founding a Professional Advisory Council in 2019, and growing it to 3 members. We over-delivered on this goal a year early, in 2018. We are pleased to add 3 additional members to the council, bringing its membership to 10 education, science, technology, mathematics, design, law, and health professionals. The council provides guidance to help us create policy based on best practices, solve new challenges, develop continuous improvement and innovate our curriculum, and other aspects of creating a top school for the gifted in Chicago.
