Tepeyac’s 25th annual benefit dinner ¡Creemos! is moving on up to a new location, the Harold Washington Library’s Winter Garden, the top floor of that well known Chicago landmark. Our 25th Scholarship Dinner takes place April 24, 2020; we are thrilled to be celebrating 25 years of ¡Creemos!, We Believe, where we celebrate Tepeyac’s mission of never turning any young woman away for financial reasons, made possible by the tremendous support of our 300+ guests. Our young women strive for a better future; 29% in the class of 2019 were the first in their family to graduate high school, 81% the first to attend college. 100% have gone to college for the past 11years and counting. Join the party, mark your calendars
Calling the Class of 2024 - Welcome to Tepeyac's Sisterhood!
We have very special news to share. Two seniors, Emma and Marissa, were nominated and applied to the Posse Foundation Scholarship at the beginning of the school year. They went through three rounds of interviews making it to the final round. Last week they received the best news, both were awarded The Posse Foundation Scholarship, a FULL-TUITION leadership scholarship from Posse’s partner colleges and universities. Emma will attend St. Olaf College while Marissa will attend Agnes Scott College next fall.

Class of 2020 College Acceptances so far.....
“ My classmates have taught me the importance of friendship. We have all encountered similar struggles but are continuing our journeys together, no matter how tough things get.”
“ What I like best is the connections I make with my teachers. Tepeyac feels like our home. There’s a whole support system here.”
“ You come to Tepeyac as a young girl with a dream and you leave as a young woman with a vision.”
“ We meet these girls where they are at and take them farther than they ever imagined toward success, despite what may have come before Tepeyac, and despite what people in other parts of their lives may be telling them. “
