Our Mission

The ACT-SO program is intended to be a learning experience, first and foremost.


The mission of the DuPage County ACT-SO program is to nurture excellence and provide positive reinforcement to African American high school students.

We will partner with the community to raise cultural awareness, showcase talents, academic achievements and entrepreneurial skills, as well as develop leaders and provide life enrichment opportunities without regard to educational or economic status.


DuPage County, Illinois ACT-SO will:

  • Be the program of choice for African American students.
  • Send a participant, each year, to compete in all categories at the national level.
  • Have sufficient resources (human, capital, and physical) to meet program goals.
