Chicago

STC Chicago is a cross-sector network of roughly 30 district, charter, and independent schools committed to closing the opportunity and skills gap for Chicago’s children.

What We Do

STC Chicago offers programs that enhance real-world learning including: Professional Learning Groups, a High School Transition working group, and a HS Exploration Event for middle schools. Additionally, we are launching Maker Programs with several local schools and we seek to create a career pathway awareness program in K-8 to aid students in the high school transition process, ultimately creating a more robust education to employment pathway

Special Chicago Initiatives

High School Exploration

STC Chicago runs a High School Transition working group and an annual High School Exploration event. The event, which reaches hundreds of students annually, helps middle schoolers and their families navigate the difficult high school application process. Additionally, the working group, which includes middle school teachers and counselors and community based organizations, meets throughout the year to share resources and create new tools to better facilitate the transition from middle to high school for students.

We can't believe that it is almost here...but we're officially one week out from Design Day! On November 15th, middle schoolers from the entire Schools That Can Chicago network will come together to envision how they would create an area of the Obama Foundation's future Obama Presidential Center if they were the architects.

This incredible event would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors, Vistria Group, Perkins Janus Henderson, David Mason & Associates, Goldberg Kohn, Ariel Investments, Environmental Systems Design, Inc., and Northern Trust. We are so grateful for their commitment to empowering students, inspiring our community, and making real-world learning possible.

Make plans to join us next Friday: stcchicago-obama-designday.eventbrite.com
