Steinmetz College Prep (also known as Steinmetz High School or Steinmetz Academic Centre) is a public 4-year high school located in the Belmont Cragin neighborhood on the Northwest Side of Chicago, Illinois. It is a part of the Chicago Public Schools. It is named for the handicapped German-American mathematician and electrical engineer Charles Proteus Steinmetz.

The 2000 television movie Cheaters is based on a 1995 Academic Decathlon scandal that involved the school. Parts of Cheaters were filmed (without permission) at Steinmetz.[2]


Steinmetz competes in the Chicago Public League (CPL) and is a member of the Illinois High School Association (IHSA). The boys' baseball team were Public League champions during the 1974-75 season. The boys' cross country team were Public League champions in the 1949-50 and 1991-92 seasons.[3]
