About our Chicagoland Campuses


An accredited, not-for-profit institution focusing exclusively on psychology and related behavioral sciences, The Chicago School has been an innovator in the field of psychology and related behavioral sciences for more than 30 years. It offers students a choice of two locations in the Chicagoland area.

Downtown Chicago

Located directly on the Chicago River in the heart of downtown, our Chicago location is just steps away from Lake Michigan, the theatre district, the famed Magnificent Mile, dozens of museums, and some of the world's top restaurants and clubs. Sometimes described as a colorful "patchwork quilt" of diverse neighborhoods—including Greek, Chinese, Indian, Irish, Jewish, Mexican, Native American, African-American, Polish, Swedish, Tibetan, Ukrainian, and more—Chicago provides a true multicultural environment for your educational training. Our Chicago Campus offers a full continuum of graduate programs for students interested in any area of psychology; degrees are available at the master's, education specialist, doctoral, or certificate level.

Grayslake, Illinois

To accommodate the needs of residents in Chicago's northern suburbs, we also offer some programs at the University Center of Lake County (UCLC), in Grayslake, Ill. Students are able to attend their classes close to home while also participating in the countless opportunities our Chicago Campus has to offer.
