Class of 2019

Seniors Preparing for Change!

As the seasons are rapidly changing, we are confronted with the notion that our Seniors will soon be leaving New Trier for the next stop on their journey through life. In examining our feelings, we must also remember that our kids are experiencing a lack of control over what their future will look like. Many are in the midst of applications and experiencing real stress in their young lives, all the while holding on to what they know as they are simultaneously pulling away from it. Partnering with your Post High School Counselor, adviser and other parents can help us all better understand our students and what they are experiencing. We are fortunate at New Trier to have such amazing resources for our students and their parents.
