SAT Deadline Approaching


If you have not yet taken the SAT or would like to re-take the SAT to try for an improved score you need to sign up for the October SAT! Don’t wait! Sign-up today!


It’s not too early to start thinking about the SAT or ACT! I recommend taking one of these tests in the first half of your 11th grade year. I know college seems like its years away, but this time next year you will be starting your college applications! You can take the SAT or ACT as many times as you would like. A suggestion would be to take the exam once in the first half of your 11th grade year, once towards the end of your 11th grade year, and again at the start of 12th grade year if needed.

University of Chicago at ISD

The University of Chicago will be on campus Wednesday September 10th providing a lunch time presentation to all 11th and 12th grade students. I encourage each one of you to attend this presentation to learn what UChicago has to offer YOU! 

UChicago is a private university chartered in 1890. William Rainey Harper, the first president, imagined a university that would
 combine an American-style undergraduate liberal arts college with a German-style graduate research university. The University of Chicago quickly fulfilled Harper's dream, becoming an international leader in academia and research. 

Boasting its 211-acre campus on the shores of Lake Michigan, UChicago has been home to over 85 Nobel Laurea
tes, the largest number affiliated with any American university. UChicago scholars were the first to split the atom, to measure the speed of light, and to develop the field of sociology. The College is the largest academic unit of the University, which encompasses 10 graduate divisions and professional schools, including on-campus law, business, and medical school.
