Hansberry College Prep History

In August 2012, Hansberry College Prep opened its doors to its first 9th grade class, a group of over 250 freshmen under the name Noble Auburn Gresham College Prep. Going into our second year, we changed our name to honor the late Lorraine Hansberry, a native of Chicago's South Side. Ms. Hansberry was an African American writer and playwright best known for her play A Raisin in the Sun.

Our students follow The Bengal Way: Collaboration, Persistence, and Reflection.  Staff and students have created a culture at HCP that promotes working together, accountability with a strong focus on discipline, critical thinking, and doing what is necessary to achieve goals.  At HCP we celebrate our successes and work hard to overcome our challenges.

Hansberry College Prep is an IB World School offering the Diploma Programme. These are schools that share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Hansberry College Prep believes is important for our students.
