Program Description

ITW David Speer Academy is the first Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) high school in the Noble Network of Charter Schools. Our mission is to prepare historically underrepresented groups for the rigor of college and expose them to all the career possibilities in the fields of STEM. We opened our doors in 2014 to 300 students in the City of Chicago. Speer Academy is focused on preparing students to graduate college with STEM degrees to meet our work force's demands.

Students are exposed to rigorous college preparatory classes, participate in college courses on a college campus, have access to a state-of-the-art educational and athletic facilities, and more. Our students will have the opportunity to participate in a STEM internship during their senior year with Fortune 500 companies.
