Professional Development Opportunity

The IACAC High School Counselor Professional Development (HSCPD) and Summer Institute Committees are excited to promote IACAC’s Summer Institute hosted by Knox College in Galesburg, IL from July 15 – 17, 2015. 

In the past, Summer Institute was geared towards college admission professionals, but this year, it will include a high school counselor track as well! Summer Institute is an excellent opportunity for new and not-so-new school counselors to expand their knowledge and to learn the “Ins & Outs” of the college admission process.

This professional development opportunity is designed for high school counselors with zero to three years of school counseling experience or for any educator in a new role assisting students and their families in the college search and application process. The three-day event will offer the opportunity to attend multiple presentations led by Illinois’ leading voices in college admissions and network with college admission professionals and other high school counselors. Attendees are also eligible for professional development hours through ISBE.

The price will be $50, which includes meals and residence hall accommodations for two nights.   

Due to the generous support of a NACAC Imagine Grant and the IACAC Executive Board, we are pleased to offer this subsidized rate for high school counselors in this initial year.  Preference will be given to counselors currently working in high schools.
