Junior High Achievers Academic Enrichment

The Junior High Achievers program reinforces the academic performance of motivated seventh and eighth graders in non-credit high school coursework. While COD does not offer high school credit for programs, contact your student's school to determine if credit or advanced placement can be awarded. COD can provide course outlines and final grades upon request. Final grades for academic classes are mailed home and not eligible for official transcripts.

The High School Student Handbook will serve as your guide for program policies. Program participants and parents or guardians are required to complete an online orientation session which is posted mid-spring and emailed to the account listed during registration.    

Any child enrolled in academic or enrichment programs remaining on our Glen Ellyn campus for lunch must also enroll in Lunch Supervision. No child under the age 16 may be left unescorted on the campus. Call (630) 942-2208 for details and to register.
