College Bound Peoria
A new addition to Peoria Public Schools' Parent University is our "College Bound Peoria" program. College Bound Peoria is an educational program through Parent University designed for rising 9th and 10th grade students and parents to help propel them to higher education. This true partnership between students, parents and District 150 is a cohort program that students and parents will be a part of throughout high school. For the 2014-2015 year we will be accepting 30 students and their parents. Applications will be available through high school counselors.
