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.
