SENIOR ROAD TRIP #1 - Monmouth and Knox

The Guidance Department will be offering our first senior road trip on Tuesday, October 6th. We will be traveling to Monmouth College and Knox College.

This is a great opportunity for seniors to get a feel for a smaller size school in the area. We will be spending the morning at Knox College and then travel to Monmouth for an afternoon visit. Lunch will be provided by Monmouth College at no cost to the students. Students will be given a tour and chance to meet the admissions reps from both schools.

We will be leaving IVC at 7:30 and return by 3:15. This road trip will count as a college visit. Each senior is allowed two college visits. Sign-ups are in the Guidance Office. Space is limited to 12 students.


The PSAT/NMSQT is a great way to preview and practice for the SAT. It will test the same skills and knowledge as the SAT — in a way that makes sense for your grade level.

When you get your test results, connect your College Board and Khan Academy®accounts to get free personalized SAT study recommendations.

The test is October 14th, 2015. We start promptly at 8:00 a.m. We will test in lab 99, be early! The fee is $15.00 and due when signing up. Please make checks available to Illinois Valley Central High School. We have limited spots so the deadline to sign up is September 25th, 2015. Please call Mrs. Myers or Ms. Lee with additional questions (309) 274-5481. Please see below the changes that have been made to the 2015 PSAT/NMSQT.
