Thank you for your interest in supporting the students of l’Ecole de Choix / the School of Choice through student sponsorships. Currently (and fortunately), all of our students are linked with sponsors. However, we renew sponsorships on their anniversary dates and they often become available on a regular basis.
If you would like to be notified when student sponsorships become available, please click here to send a message to l’Ecole de Choix and provide your contact details.

The mission of Snow City Arts is to provide arts education and foster cultural enrichment for the benefit of hospitalized children.
Snow City Arts provides one-on-one instruction in the visual arts, creative writing, music, drama, and film making to patients at Rush Children's Hospital, Children's Memorial Hospital, and John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County. We added a service at a fourth hospital in August, 2012: Children's Hospital University of Illinois. We have started slowly there, due to a lack of funding, but plan on increasing the number of sessions as soon as we increase our capacity.
When the children are well enough to leave their rooms, they can take advantage of our Idea Labs at Rush and Stroger Hospitals. The Snow City Arts Idea Lab is a medical-free room on the pediatric unit which we have equipped with computers, sound recording equipment, a piano, and audio and reading libraries. The Idea Labs provide a special place where children can work with equipment and supplies that may not be easily transported to patient rooms and/or treatment areas.
