“What an amazing life experience you’ve given me!  Thanks once again!” –Paul Edlund, Founding Partner from Microsoft

Our mission is to provide these experiences for every student at Chicago Tech Academy.

ChiTech is not just about college and career preparation, but positioning our students to be leaders—leaders who do not accept the world as it is, but create problem-solving solutions to change the world as it should be.

Chicago Tech’s industry partnership program allows students to become involved with businesses and learn from the best-of-the-best. Over 100 partners from entrepreneurial start-ups to large, global firms have provided mentors, field trip and job shadow opportunities to help our students learn technology in addition to financial and operational support.

The purpose of this program is to expose students to the world of work in technology, the boundless opportunities across industries, and to help them make connections to key business leaders in Chicago. These relationships make all the difference in the world for inner-city students.
