Post Secondary

Morgan Park High School is committed to ensuring that each student has a post-secondary plan when they graduate.

  • Participate in senior post-secondary planning events with counselors.
  • Complete the Individual Learning Plan tasks in Naviance.
  • Complete and submit the Federal Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
  • Complete at least 5 applications for college, including a match* school in Illinois.

  • Complete at least 5 scholarship applications.
  • Retake/ take the SAT/ACT test.
  • Complete a Senior Exit Questionnaire and Summer Transition Tracker and graduate with a concrete post-secondary plan.

*Match schools are determined by the student's grade point average (GPA) and standardized test score. You can find a spreadsheet with colleges and the selectivity for a student's match below.
