The college search process can be both an exciting and anxious time in a high school student's life. There are many factors to consider, and the importance of those factors will vary from student to student.  We encourage parents and guardians to get involved in the search process and to offer guidance, advice, and support.  With that in mind, we have identified a few links to the right and below that may be helpful as you and your child consider Northwestern.

Our website should answer many of your questions; however, should you need more assistance, we are happy to hear from you. You may contact us at or by telephone at 847-491-7271.
