Forest View is located at 2121 S. Goebbert Road, in Arlington Heights. All college-bound juniors and their parents are welcome to attend the free event.

Experts from private schools, colleges, universities and professional organizations will host break-out sessions on highly selective colleges and universities, liberal arts colleges, international universities, STEM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Mathematics) schools, and visual and performing arts schools. Each speaker will describe the academic programs, future career opportunities, educational advantages, admission requirements, and distinctive characteristics of their specialized college option.

Speakers include the following: Onis Cheathams (Northwestern University), Shalini Uppu (University of Chicago), Carin Smith (Lawrence University), Colleen Duke, (Consulate General of Canada-Chicago), Mark Griffin (St. Mary's University College - London), Rick Bischoff (Case Western Reserve University), and Patty Kovacs (University of Chicago Laboratory Schools).

The content of the presentation will give families important things to consider when finding the best fit for college. Juniors and their parents can choose any two of five breakout sessions, or split up to learn about four different sessions. Each session is 40 minutes in length.
