CHSAS is the only Illinois finalist in contention for a $100,000 Dream Big Challenge grant through Farmers Insurance “THANK A MILLION TEACHERS” program. 

If selected the school will use the grant to build an equine education center that would provide horse related learning and riding opportunities to thousands of Chicago area residents and expand their training program for Special Olympic athletes from other schools.  The center will host agriculture education events including clinics by experts, horse shows, agriculture trade shows, Special Olympic competitions, and provide job-skill training for regular and special needs students.
