Boys State: Any boy who is finishing his junior year and is interested in attending Boys State should sign up in the Counseling Office.  At Boys State, students experience “learn by doing” training to understand the rights, privileges, duties, and responsibilities of citizenship and government. Boys State will be held at Eastern Illinois University from June 10-June 16.

Semester Exams: Semester Exams for Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors are May 16 (periods 1, 2, 3), May 17 (periods 4 and 5, 2:10 dismissal), and May 18 (periods 6 and 7, 11:30 dismissal).

Summer School:  There are two types of summer school offered in our area.  Students may take summer school classes to compensate for graduation deficiencies.  Parents and students are encouraged to contact the counseling office about registering.  Summer school fills quickly and space is limited.

Summer school for enrichment purposes is also available; however high school credit will not be awarded for these classes.  Kaskaskia College offers summer scholarships for current high school freshman, sophomore, and junior students.  Students can take a class with 50% tuition waived through the Jumpstart program.  Students are responsible for all fees, textbook cost, and half of tuition.  Applications for the Jumpstart program and Kaskaskia College’s summer course schedule are available in the NCHS counseling office or online
