College Resources for Freshmen & Sophomores


11/29/18 at 7 p.m. - "So You Want To Go To College?" Night in the JHHS Theatre

Career Nights: 

  • 10/10: Arts & Communications/ Human Services at Elk Grove High School from 6:30 – 8:30 PM
  • 10/24: Health/Natural Resources at John Hersey High School from 6:30 - 8:30 PM
  • 11/7: Engineering & Industrial Technology/Business * Computers Night at Rolling Meadows High School from 6:30 – 8:30 

While many of our students plan to go to college immediately after high school, we find this type of career exploration encourages stronger high school grades as students understand the link between their coursework and their ultimate goals. It also helps students begin to identify potential interests, internships, jobs and college majors, which helps in the college search process. Please encourage your son or daughter to attend at least one Career Night during this year.

Athletic Night, 11/19 at 7 p.m. in the Forest View Educational Center Theatre:  

For students who want to play intercollegiate athletics. This program provides an overview of the college recruitment process, athletic eligibility requirements and scholarship possibilities. Our speaker will be Maureen Harty, Commissioner of the Heartland Athletic Conference.
