College & Career Counseling

Preparation for the college application process begins when our students enter as freshmen.

Our desire is that by the time our students head off to pursue their future, they are academically and socially prepared for the challenges that will come their way. This is a highly individualized process and counselors will work to make sure that students keep as many options as possible open until it comes time to narrow down to a smaller list of selected schools.

College and Career Resource Center

The College and Career Resource Center offers an extensive library that provides a wide variety of resource materials and reference books to assist with the college and career selection process. Jennifer Gleason is available from 7:30 am to 3:30 pm Monday through Friday during the school year to assist students and parents and answer any questions and may also be reached by phone at 847-582-7342.

News

In response to the rapidly evolving situation around the coronavirus (COVID-19) and guidance from public health organizations, the College Board is canceling the May 2, 2020, SAT administration. Makeup exams for the March 14 administration (scheduled March 28) are also canceled. The College Board will provide refunds to all students who are registered for May, whose March test centers were closed, or who do not receive March scores due to an irregularity. (*please see attached email which was sent to students yesterday at approx. 5pm).

Together with our member schools and colleges, we will be flexible, thoughtful, and collaborative in exploring ways to continue to support student learning and provide opportunities to test during this challenging time.

  • The College Board will be as flexible as possible to give students the best chance to show their skills and stay on the path to college.
  • We'll provide future additional SAT testing opportunities for students as soon as feasible in place of canceled administrations.
  • We have not yet canceled the June 6, 2020, SAT national administration and will continue to assess its status with the health and safety of students and educators as our top priority.
  • In the coming days, the College Board will share additional information and details directly with registered students and test centers. A webpage with regularly posted information about the impact of the virus on the SAT can be found here.
