Dear Prospective Families,

Welcome! Chicago Tech Academy’s mission is to educate, empower and connect a diverse next generation of entrepreneurial thinkers, to discover their passion, succeed in college and thrive in a digital world.  Our unique curriculum incorporates project-based learning, entrepreneurial principles, STEM coursework, and real world experiences with Chicago companies to encourage students to pursue degrees and careers in science, technology, engineering, art and math.  Our methodology asks students to actively explore solving real-world problems to acquire a deeper level of learning.

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 30 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!
