District 214 offers students opportunities to explore potential career pathways and areas of interest beyond the traditional classroom. This helps strengthen their commitment to a future career or eliminates that career from consideration — both incredibly valuable experiences for a student still in high school.
District 214 offers intensive coursework through centralized District-level programs in aviation, education and medical science, allowing students to do hands-on work in professional environments.
Additional enrichment opportunities include summer seminars offered via our Talent Development Program (TDP), participation in the Illinois Energy Efficient Vehicle Competition and robotics.
Students also have the opportunity to hear critical feedback on their work from industry professionals at annual District events, including showcases focused on entrepreneurship, mobile app development and computer-aided design (CAD).
