There are so many questions to ask when it comes to preparing for college. During our 5K District Initiative Events, we help students get prepared for and connected with college. We network with colleges in Illinois as well as throughout the United States. We look for colleges that offer great opportunities for student enrichment, learning and personal growth. During the 5K District Initiative students learn the questions to ask any admissions counselor and receive up to date information on local and out-of-state colleges.
Because college is a significant financial investment for most families, it is increasingly important for students to make the very best college choices. Therefore, we strategically network with colleges offering programs that due to certain criteria, be that academic achievement, leadership potential or a student’s understanding and appreciation of diversity, make them a viable candidate for institutional scholarships.
College Affiliates are featured in our program. This means that information specific to that college is shared with students. Each featured college offers a wide variety of academic programs and a vibrant student life experience at a reasonable tuition rate. College Affiliates can expect to have increased local market exposure, access to a diverse student base, and an increase in Chicago-land undergraduate applications.
I am a College Representative interested in providing 1 on 1 thirty minute phone or skype college coaching sessions to a local high school student. I realize there is no fee for me to participate and I may discontinue my participation at anytime.
