In 2014, LEAP launched Breakthrough Schools: Chicago, a regional pilot of the national Next Generation Learning Challenges program.

Seven schools, including traditional and charter elementary and high schools, received one-to-one support as they developed proposals for their personalized learning models. $100,000 planning grants were awarded to each of these schools; five schools have already been awarded $263,000 in additional implementation grant funds..
