For this reason, the mission of the Education Committee is to communicate a vision for identifying community needs and resources in organizing high quality educational and outreach programs designed to provide lifelong learning, health, and service opportunities for all residents in the community.
Listed below are Evanston’s educational institutions:
Xavier University (Certificates, Associates, Bachelors and PhD)

Academy of World Languages (K-8th)
Evanston Academy (K-6th)

Council’s role will be to support these educational systems and partner with these institutions in achieving their mission within the community. Success criteria will be based on involvement form the educational systems and their service projects in providing tutoring, study groups, youth leadership training and other activities that assist in the development of students that live in the Evanston Community. This will be an ongoing effort through the year 2023.
