A high school diploma is great; but you've got bigger plans -- like moving out someday -- and you'll need the training and education to reach your goals.
We think Spoon River College is a great place for high school students. We know that you have a lot of options to choose from and that making a decision can be hard. But let us tell you why we think Spoon River College is the right choice for you.
- You can take college classes with us while you're still in high school and earn high school credit at the same time.
- Our general education courses transfer to any Illinois public four-year university and many private colleges.
- By going to Spoon River College for your first two years, you can live at home, go to school, work, and save a considerable amount over going away to school.
- Because of our small size, your college experience with us is a personal experience. Our faculty will know you by name; our staff can give you personalized attention; you can get involved and not get lost in the crowd.
