History & Campus Partnerships

Golder College Prep is a campus of the Noble Network of Charter Schools in Chicago, IL. We opened our doors on August 20, 2007 to a freshman class of 155 students. Today, we serve over 645 students in grades 9th through 12th . Golder College Prep was named for the generosity of the Joan Golder family and their commitment to high quality education. The Golder family is actively involved at GCP, often attending school-wide activities, graduation, sporting events, and visiting advisories. Their involvement at our campus has grown to include a dedicated scholarship fund for Golder graduates. The Golders also continue to be an active part of Noble's future through Nancy Golder Northrip who is a member of Noble's Board of Directors.

 Golder offers a rigorous college preparatory curriculum, a strict discipline policy, and a supportive small-school environment.  Our mascot is the panther and our school colors are purple and silver.  We offer numerous enrichment classes after school including: Tae Kwon Do, Yearbook, Student Council, Black Student Union, Theatre and National Honor Society.  Our elective classes currently offered are PE, Digital Arts, Band and Choir. The foreign language taught at Golder is Spanish.
