College/Career Readiness Calendar


Vienna High School invites and hosts several university and college Admission Counselors/Representatives to come to the high school to meet with interested students.  Several local universities come and work with our Seniors specifically on admission and scholarship applications. We are also having all Seniors complete the Common App, which is a website that allows one hub for many college/university applications. Below you will find a link to a college and career calendar which indicates events going on each month. 

College/Career Readiness Calendar

Our community colleges, Shawnee Community College and Southeastern Illinois College, are present and always ready to assist our students.  These colleges offer VHS dual credit courses and also dual enrollment (high school students can take college level courses outside of the school day). We work with all Seniors to complete the admissions and scholarship processes. 

Juniors and Seniors (especially Seniors) are able and encouraged to take college visit days throughout the school year. These do have to be approved by teachers and counselor. We encourage students to visit institutions they are interested in attending.  We do also take several field trips to various college/universities throughout the school year. 

Please call the Guidance Office or email me if you have questions or need more details. Additional information can be found in the Media Center.
