Interviews and Impromptu Writing

On Thursday, January 25th, Academy applicants will complete two writing samples and sit for an interview with staff and current students. We will do this in person at Glenbrook South High School unless health conditions change.  Applicants must report to the Lyceum, Room 1109, at 3:45 p.m.  This room is located on the First Floor, East Wing.

The meeting will run from 3:45 to 6:30 p.m.

Please contact Mr. Whipple or Mrs. Chandiles with any questions or concerns.

Communication of Admission Status

On Friday, February 16 (after school), each applicant will be sent an email containing The Academy's final decision on placement. In the meantime, all applicants should complete the high school registration materials required of all eighth graders. Those eighth graders placed into The Academy will be rescheduled by guidance counselors later this spring.
