Chicago Commuter Programs

Are you interested in immersing yourself in a STEM-focused, future-forward college prep program while also getting a taste of campus life from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day?

Elevate College Prep’s Chicago Commuter Programs offer you all that and much more—including the chance to visit Illinois Tech’s Mies Campus in Chicago’s historic Bronzeville neighborhood each day, as well as the university’s Conviser Law Center in downtown Chicago.
