About Us

Our History

In 2008, leadership from Instituto del Progreso Latino (Instituto) began exploring the idea of creating a new high school that could help serve Chicago’s pressing need for high quality education within urban communities. Through the spirit of partnership, Instituto began to communicate this vision with stakeholders in high demand industries. The end result was the creation of the Instituto Health Sciences Career Academy (IHSCA), a new charter high school that will serve youth from grades 9 to 12 from Chicago communities.
