While Chicago Public Schools (CPS) high schoolers may be living and learning virtually, the college planning process continues. To ensure CPS students are prepared for life after high school, City Colleges of Chicago has partnered with Chicago Public Schools and the Chicago Mayor’s Office to host a Virtual College Exploration Week the week of April 27th – May 1st.
This weeklong, online experience will help students, parents, and community members better plan for post-secondary opportunities, including advice on applying for financial aid, information on scholarships like the Star Scholarship, details about City Colleges programs and student services, as well as virtual challenges for students with the chance to win prizes. All sessions are free and the general public is invited to attend sessions dedicated for community members.
