Dear Prospective Families,

Welcome! At ChiTech we are changing lives by inspiring, educating, and connecting a diverse next generation of technology leaders.  Our unique curriculum incorporates project-based learning, entrepreneurial principles, STEM education, and real world experience with Chicago companies to encourage students to pursue degrees and careers in science, technology, and engineering.  Our methodology asks students to actively explore solving real-world problems to acquire a deeper level of learning. All of this adds up to the ChiTech Experience!

These experiences make up the ChiTech difference.  ChiTech is also home to the mighty Panthers and competes in the Chicago Public League in Football, Basketball, Volleyball, and Track.  We also boast over 20 student-run, student-initiated clubs, and activities as well as a student-led organic garden.  Whatever your interests, ChiTech has a group to further enrich your high school experience.

From using the city of Chicago as your learning lab to planning for college to extra-curricular activities to building friendships that will last a lifetime, selecting a high school is an important decision. ChiTech’s goal is to help you achieve your dreams in a unique, technology-focused, student-led environment.  We hope you will join us!
