Chicago Semester Student Teaching Program 

Lake Forest College has partnered with the Chicago Semester Program to offer the opportunity to complete student teaching in the Chicago Public Schools. Since 1974, the Chicago Semester has provided support for students from small colleges across the Midwest to come together for an urban student teaching experience to live and learn in Chicago. During the semester, students have the option to live in Canterbury Court Apartments convenient to public transportation on the Near North Side or in the Pilsen neighborhood at LaCasa Student Housing. This housing site is also easily accessible by train and provides safe and affordable housing in a welcoming, student-friendly atmosphere. Fall applications are due on March 1. Spring applications are due on May 1.
