College Search/Admissions Process

The college search process is an important step in discovering your future. Over 90 percent of District 214 students attend either a two-year or four-year post-secondary educational institution.

Contact your counselor or college counselor for support with this important process.  

College Counseling Websites

Every District 214 high school has a dedicated college counselor to support students in the college search and admission processes.

D214 College Planning Guide

The D214 College Planning Guide site was designed to give an overview of the college search and application process, resources and information on how you can support your student throughout high school. The course will give parents an understanding of college-related terms and procedures, as well as how the process works for District 214 students. We hope this fosters college planning conversations with your family and friends.

Please use this course as an introduction to the world of college. We highly recommend you use this as a supplement to our many college counseling programs. Dates and information on upcoming events can be found on the College Resources section of your school’s website.
