High School District 214 believes in preparing students for a world we can’t yet imagine. Through our Advanced Placement, Dual Credit and certificate programs, we are positioning our students to successfully complete college or enter the workplace with in-demand 21st century skills. Our Career Pathways enable students to discover their passion by taking rigorous coursework and gaining relevant experiences through internships and other opportunities while still in high school. We are continually identifying ways to expand access to college while also making it more affordable, including developing new partnerships with Harper College.
Starting with the 2015-16 freshman class, every student in High School District 214 will eventually have the opportunity to earn up to two years of free Harper College tuition through the Harper Promise scholarship program. Freshmen must meet strict eligibility requirements to participate in this scholarship program, and they must apply during the application window, from October 15 through December 15.

Power of 15
Research shows students who enter college with 15 or more credits are twice as likely to graduate with a degree. The Power of 15 partnership boosts college affordability by providing access to college credits in high school. The program allows District 214 students to take college classes in high school that can simultaneously count toward their high school diploma and college degree. Successful completion with a grade of C or better will result in transferable college credit on a Harper College transcript.
