collegenightAdmission representatives from colleges around the country will be gathered in one place to provide information about their admissions process and answer questions about programs, student life, and financial aid.

The 2016-2017 District 211 College Night program will be held on Wednesday, October 19, 2016, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. (doors open at 6:30 p.m.) at Palatine High School, 1111 N. Rohlwing Road in Palatine.  The event is open to all High School District 211 students and their parents. 

For students and parents unable to visit a college campus, College Night is the perfect opportunity to meet with the college representatives who will be reading their applications. More than 200 representatives from two- and four-year colleges and military academies will provide curriculum and campus information. Before the event, students are encouraged to create a label sheet with identifying information on it, such as name, home address, high school, GPA, ACT score, sports and activities, and more.  In use this year will be StriveScan, an app that allows colleges to scan a barcode containing student information.  The app also sends an email to the student with information about the college, saving time and providing easy access to important information.

Free, round-trip shuttle bus service will be provided from other District 211 schools to Palatine High School.  Parents are asked to take advantage of shuttle buses because parking is limited.  Sign up for the shuttle bus here.
