Green Halo works with each of our scholars on the college application process.
We assist them in making informed college choices based on the best academic, social, and financial fit.
We teach our scholars how to build their college lists and evaluate the graduation rate,
academic quality, and overall sustainability at each of the colleges they are considering.
Nominated by their high school counselors while in their second semester of junior year, our scholars receive guidance from a professional college counselor hired by Green Halo Scholars. Participation in the program includes support from our mentors to attend the Chicago Scholars Onsite Admission Forum held yearly in October in Chicago, IL. Onsite gives our students the unique opportunity to interview with college representatives, to potentially receive onsite admission offers as well as financial aid at the event. additional guidance includes, but is not limited to, bi-weekly online meetings beginning with a focus on Onsite participation and continuing beyond Onsite with completing additional college applications, FAFSA support, scholarship selection and ultimately helping our high schoolers make the right college choice to attend in the fall. At this time our program is limited to Bolingbrook, Proviso East, Proviso Math & Science, Hinsdale South, and Proviso West High Schools.
