The Tech Campus is an extension of many area high schools for high school students to attend classes in a specific career training program. The Tech Campus is regarded as one of the best career and technical education training facilities in the Midwest with a highly qualified staff dedicated to excellence in career and technical education. With twenty-two member high schools throughout Lake and McHenry Counties representing nearly 1,800 high school students, we have the largest career technical secondary educational system in the state of Illinois.
The Tech Campus experience provides an educational environment that supports and encourages individual learning styles, develops occupational skills and professionalism, promotes academic growth, and assists students in discovering their potential. In addition to high school credit, the Tech Campus partnered with the College of Lake County allows students the opportunity to earn college credit at no cost.
Classes are offered in three sessions, five days a week. Each Tech Campus program allows students to learn at their own pace through a hands-on, experiential based philosophy. Through their respective programs, students use program-specific mathematics, science reasoning, language arts, and technology in real-world applications.
