Students can schedule individual appointments for a college counseling session with Mr. Yerkan. Prior to scheduling an appointment students will need to complete a few steps (instructions below) so that the appointment can be more productive. After completing the steps students should see Miss Arvia in the College and Career Room (CCR) or parents can contact Miss Arvia at (847) 718-5661 if they choose to make the appointment. Parents calling to schedule appointments should have their students tell them which block(s) would be "least disruptive" to their academics for their appointment PRIOR to calling for an appointment. Whenever possible, appointment times are made to try and accommodate student and parent schedules. Parents are encouraged to attend the appointment with their student. No appointments are conducted without the student.

During a college counseling session information will be gathered about the student with the goal of providing a list of possible school matches for that student. Some of the ways information will be gathered during the session will include a review of the student's transcript, a discussion of courses selected for the next school year (juniors), and a conversation about the student's predicted, or actual, ACT/SAT score. Appointment sessions usually take one hour and are held in the CCR.
College representatives who would like to schedule a time to meet with students in the CCR should contact Miss Arvia at (847)718-5661. Visit times are scheduled for, and should not exceed, thirty minutes.
