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.
