Business partnership/advertising opportunities

At District 88, we are committed to providing multiple and flexible pathways for students to ensure they are college and career ready.

We continue to work with colleges, universities and local businesses to enhance these options and meet our students’ diverse and individual needs. We know these pathways are critical to help with the labor shortage and to connect students to hands-on, immersive experiences, as well as certifications, credentials and scholarships. One of our top priorities is to remove barriers for all students to help them access employment and build positive futures. The focus is to connect them with viable short-term and long-term career options and work-based learning that can provide a supported pathway through their college pursuits. We are always looking to develop more partnerships – see how you can support District 88 students below!

District 88 students also have access to Advanced Placement (AP)/college-level and dual-credit classes, as well as externally credentialed and dual-credit career pathways in automotive technology, culinary arts, business careers, engineering, medical careers, PLTW (engineering and biomedical), teacher preparation, building trades and robust internship and paid apprenticeship programs in the manufacturing and technology fields. We have established a variety of apprenticeships, internships and vocational trainings. For more information, go to
