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. Steinmetz is apart of the Chicago Public Schools district. The school is named for the handicapped German-American mathematician and electrical engineer Charles Proteus Steinmetz. Steinmetz opened in 1919.

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). Steinmetz sport teams are nicknamed Streaks. 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]
