New Student Transition to ETHS

  • Evanston Township High School's new student transition programs are here to ensure that all new Wildkits and their families begin their journeys at ETHS with a comprehensive introduction to Wildkit life. Whether you are arriving from District 65, a private/parochial school, or are new to the Evanston/Skokie area, we welcome you to ETHS.

    Several programs are hosted throughout the academic year and in the summer to support incoming freshmen and transfer students as they register for and transition into ETHS:

    • Incoming Freshman Registration Week - the first step for prospective students and their families begins with registering online to attend ETHS
    • Incoming Freshman Information Night (IFIN) - all prospective students and their families are invited to this premier event to learn more about ETHS
    • Course Request Night - at this incoming freshmen event, counselors provide course request support and assist incoming students with submitting their online course requests 
    • Summer School - several summer school courses are available to incoming freshmen; transfer students can choose from a variety of course options
    • Freshman Orientation/Transfer Student Orientation - orientation event for all incoming freshmen and transfer students and their families
    • New Student Lunch - hosted each semester for transfer students and freshmen who are new to Evanston/Skokie
    • Transfer Student Group - hosted monthly for students in grades 10-12 who transfer to ETHS

    Incoming freshmen, as you prepare for freshman year, please review and subscribe to the important deadlines and events calendar.
