Culver Academy "Our goal at The Culver Academies and is to educate students for leadership and responsible citizenship in society by developing and nurturing the whole individual - mind, spirit, and body - through an integrated curriculum that emphasizes the cultivation of character."
Lincoln Park Juniors "The Lincoln Park Juniors program was conceived in 1998 to help young people and rowing come together in the Chicago area. Following the experience of programs in other cities, we know that rowing does a lot more for kids than teach them how to row, and kids do a lot more for their city than going back and forth in a boat. For young people, it opens doors to college acceptance, and it creates a network of skills and friendships that can be keys to opportunity."
High School Rowing Programs Maintained by the TC Williams High School Crew Team, "one of the oldest and largest public school rowing programs in the US."
