Parent Information

We are excited to welcome your high school student to campus this summer! While we recommend you also visit the Post-Admission page, we hope the information below and throughout the following pages will specifically and helpfully address concerns that you, as parents or guardians, may have. 

Arrival Info

Getting to Campus

Students must arrange their own transportation to and from campus. Students coming from the airport can arrive via ride sharing apps, public transportation, or shuttles. We recommend Go Airport Express, which operates out of both Midway and O'Hare Airports and will drop students off right in front of Campus North Residential Commons. To schedule a pick-up, go to or call 1-888-284-3826 (press option 1 to be connected to an operator immediately). When they get on the shuttle, students will need to alert the driver that they need to be dropped off at Campus North Residential Commons. 

High School Orientation

Session I is Saturday-Sunday, June 16-17; Orientation for Session II is Saturday-Sunday, July 7-8. High School residential students arriving after July 9 for later sessions will be oriented when they arrive and should note that the overwhelming majority of high school students leave by July 26.

Orientation begins at Campus North Residential Commons (5500 S. University Avenue) and is required for all students. Parents are welcome to attend Orientation on Saturday before 4:00 pm, but all events after 4:00 pm on Saturday and all day Sunday are for students only.
