Chicago — A Chicago high school comprised entirely of African-American students will be sending all of its 104 graduating seniors to college for the second year in a row.

Urban Prep Academy is the nation’s first all boys public charter high school.

Mason Fuller is one of the graduating seniors. He received a full athletic scholarship to Northern Illinois University.

“I want to major in engineering, mechanical engineering in college, and then if possible go in the NFL,” said Mason.

Urban Prep now has three campuses and they want to replicate the model across the country.
