District 214’s Future Ready Showcase


Parents of students in fourth through eighth grades are invited to our Future Ready Showcase on Monday, May 14, an evening highlighting some of District 214’s best architecture, engineering, entrepreneurship, IT and manufacturing students.

The event aims to help parents in our sender districts understand our Career Pathways program, which provides students career exploration opportunities while in high school. Our robust Career Pathways program provides all District 214 students with rigorous academic courses, access to early college credits and industry certifications, and personalized and career-specific learning experiences. Students can choose from 44 career pathways, such as aviation, business management, culinary arts, engineering, health sciences, IT and manufacturing.

Parents are encouraged to bring their children. The event takes place at the Forest View Educational Center, 2121 S. Goebbert Road in Arlington Heights.

The evening begins at 4 p.m. when District 214 students showcase their work (computer apps, high mileage vehicles and robots, among others) through interactive displays.

At 6:30 p.m., parents and students can watch District 214 entrepreneurship students pitch their startups to a panel of judges during the Startup Showcase, a Shark Tank-style competition, and see the work of our architectural students in the Architectural Showcase.
