North Central College - Naperville, IL

Granger Middle School

Indian Prairie School District 204

The partnership with Granger Middle School was formalized in fall 2011. Granger faculty members are consistently open to hosting pre-service teachers as they gain experience in the classroom through their field experience and student teaching. In spring 2012, North Central successfully hosted a group of 30 eighth-grade pupils from Granger for a campus tour that promoted college attendance. The middle school teachers attended a presentation regarding admission and financial requirements, toured campus buildings (led by current education pre-service teachers), and dined at Kaufman Dining Hall for lunch.
