What is PEP?
promoting academic excellence since 1992
The Partnership for Educational Progress (PEP) promotes excellence in the Glenbard community schools in DuPage County. As a 501c3 Educational Foundation, we provide financial resources to foster and support learning for all students today and tomorrow.
Formed by community members in 1992, PEP continues its mission to be your local pathway to provide purpose-driven funds, educational enrichment programs, and large-scale projects for students, staff and faculty in the Glenbard feeder elementary schools and Glenbard District 87 High Schools through our fund partner and scholarship programs. Contact PEP to learn about ways you can support our public schools and students.
PEP acts as a fiscal agent for several area organizations that are doing incredible work within the district to ensure students are prepared to succeed in school and that they have access to the best possible educational opportunities.

Business INCubator is much like a classroom version of “Shark Tank,” where teams of students work together to create and fully develop a product or service, putting their thoughts and ideas into action and implementing their ideas.
Business professionals volunteer as coaches and mentors for student teams, sharing their business knowledge and experience with students. The yearlong course culminates in a pitch to a board of advisors, who will award funding to teams with promising business ideas. For information contact Glenbard East teacher Don Prochilo at [email protected]
We award grants to educators, schools, and districts within the Glenbard High School District 87 and its feeder schools. We also act as a fiscal agent supporting partners with education programs and initiatives.
