A Place for Schools
Despite its small population, University Park has a combined total of three elementary and middle schools right in town. Coretta Scott King Magnet and Crete-Monee Middle Schools are public options; Deer Creek Christian School is a private school option. Students can also learn through the Chicago Virtual Charter School, which has online curricula for students in grades K-12. This school has been given a top rating on the Great Schools website (http://www.greatschools.org/illinois/university-park/schools/?gradeLevels=h). In addition, there are two institutions of higher learning for college goers, the Governors State University, which is right in town, and Prairie State College, which is nearby in Chicago Heights.
