Hansberry College Prep (formerly known as “Noble Auburn Gresham College Prep”) is a public 4-year charter high school located in the Auburn Gresham in Chicago, Illinois. It is a part of the Noble Network of Charter Schools. Hansberry College Prep opened its doors in 2012 as “Noble Auburn Gresham College Prep” in recognition of the neighborhood in which the school resides. In July 2013, the campus changed its name to Hansberry College Prep in honor of Lorraine Hansberry, an African-American writer and playwright who grew up on Chicago’s south side and who worked to combat racial segregation in the 1950s and 1960s. Hansberry College Prep currently serves grades nine and ten and will graduate its first class in 2016.[1]
