Programs

A great school is one thing. But a great school that is also part of a world-class research university? Now that is something entirely different.

Because the Laboratory Schools are part of the world-renowned University of Chicago, the importance of intellectual life—of thought and exploration—infuses everything we do across all aspects of our curriculum. Lab students of every age benefit from the University’s outstanding academicians and access to unmatched resources:

  • Special access to the Oriental Institute Museum, Smart Museum of Art, Court Theater, science labs, and sports and other UChicago facilities.
  • University faculty—scientists, policy and legal experts, historians, and humanities specialists—regularly bring their expertise into Lab classrooms.
  • High Schoolers have full access to and are taught how to use the University’s vast library resources and may take classes at the University of Chicago at no additional expense.
  • Lab’s unique Summer Link program places qualified U-Highers in paid internships with UChicago scientists and professors and businesses across the University and around the city.
