The Academy for College Admission Counseling!
Spring does make everything look and feel better.
Even though our work isn’t nearly done and we are faced with
helping seniors make their final decision and juniors begin this crazy
college selection process, it’s just easier to concentrate when the
weather cooperates, you actually can see the sun, and warmth replaces
here at The Academy, spring lets us focus on our summer Academy courses.
We get excited updating our materials and preparing to welcome our
participants. For the nineteenth
year, we will be offering our College Counseling 101, 201 and 301
classes at Elmhurst College.
We are offering classes for only one week this year – July 11th
through 13th – so registering early could prove helpful to
you. All our course and
registration information can be found by
clicking here, on our Courses
page. Registration is $400
and you can earn 16.5 Professional Development units for each class; for
an additional $600 fee, you can earn two graduate credits from Elmhurst
College. We ask that all
participants new to The Academy begin with our 101 class.
And we’re very excited to debut a new program this summer. On
Tuesday, July 10th,
we are hosting our inaugural
SUMMER SOAPBOX. We’ve
invited three industry leaders -
Jon Boeckenstedt of DePaul University, Aliza Gilbert of Highland
Park High School, and Jerry Cebrzynski of Lake Forest College – to jump
on our soapbox and share their views of where our profession is today,
and where it should be heading.
If you enjoy lively conversation, thoughtful dialogue and a
chance to share your views about our world, then plan to attend our
Summer Soapbox. Space for this event is limited, so plan to send your
$75 registration fee in today to join us.
You can find registration information by
Enjoy Spring. Enjoy
the profession that lets us really change the lives of our students.
And enjoy The Academy!
