Chicago Residential Summer

Elevate College Prep’s residential high school summer programs offer you a chance to do more than take college prep courses in highly relevant and interesting subject areas—they allow you to immerse yourself in the full college experience.

Students stay on Illinois Tech’s historic Mies Campus for the duration of the program, receiving instruction in topics such as game development, psychology, and engineering while also building friendships and exploring what college life is like outside the classroom, including opportunities to explore the vibrant, global city of Chicago.

Registration for summer 2024 programs will open on January 15, 2024.
