Illinois Online School Programs – Illinois has been a center of learning, culture, and trade in the United States for well over a century. The state is known by most as the home of Abraham Lincoln and the location of Chicago. Less known is its history of cultural and technological advancement. In 1893, for instance, Chicago hosted the Columbian exposition, an expansive fair featuring the first Ferris wheel, the first phosphorescent lamps, and even the first meeting of the Congress of Mathematicians. Notable educational institutions in Illinois include the University of Chicago and Northwestern University. The state of Illinois has maintained this tradition of cultural and educational excellence even into the digital age. Elementary, high school, and college students can now take classes at a variety of online schools in Illinois.
