Chicago Public Schools announced the three industry partners supporting Solorio Academy, Crane Medical, and Infinity Math and Science Academy – the district’s new Early College STEM Schools (ECSS) that were announced this spring. Through Early College STEM programming, students get access to industry expertise, while learning a 21st Century STEM Curriculum, increasing opportunities to earn college credit, internship experiences, and working toward an associate degree while still in high school. Early College STEM schools leverage external partnerships to prepare students for the technology careers of the future; the following industry partners have newly paired, or expanded their partnership, with the following schools:

• Crane Medical Preparatory High School – Rush University Medical Center

• Infinity Math, Science, and Technology High School – Verizon

• Solorio Academy High School – Salesforce.org

Industry partnerships provide both support for students with a connection between classroom learning and the real world. The partners also provide mentorship programming, internships, and other work-based experiences for students.
