  • Senior Portraits and VIP Photography


    Dear Seniors and Parents of Seniors


    As we communicated in a message on July 20, Wyckoff-Tweedie Photography has closed its business leaving Hinsdale Central in search of a photographer. At this time, we have secured a new photography service and have been able to maximize on efficiencies by putting all of our photography needs under the same company, Visual Image Photography (VIP).


    The reason we are reaching out to you, in particular, is because our new photographer VIP will be providing similar Senior Portraits as previous graduates have had, however, these senior portraits will be on our campus beginning October 29. Both Hinsdale Central and VIP will be reaching out to you in mid-September so that you may schedule a senior portrait appointment with VIP. In advance of scheduling a senior portrait appointment, VIP has provided the attached digital brochure that outlines their senior portrait packages which includes a yearbook photo at no cost. This same document will be given to your child through their English class in the coming weeks.


    We truly hope the yearbook photograph is representative of your child and meets their wishes. See the Hinsdale Central web site calendar for more information on VIP's yearbook pictures.

  • College Representative Visits for Juniors and Seniors


    Each fall, over 200 college representatives from schools across the country visit Hinsdale Central to meet with prospective Junior and Senior students. Information about the upcoming visits can be found in Naviance, where students can sign up to meet with the rep for schools they are interested in. Sign up is required, and students must obtain a pass from the Counseling Office at least one day ahead of time. Visits with the reps will begin on Monday, August 20 with the University of Illinois! 


    In order to best prepare for a college rep visit, students should do some advanced research about the college.  The student should check the college website, review the “view book,” or ask his/her counselor for information.  If the group attending the rep visit is small enough, there may be an opportunity for individual student interaction with the rep.  If that is the case, the student may be asked to talk about themselves or about his/her specific interest in the college.  Students will identify themselves to the rep and attendance will be taken.  We attempt to be as courteous as possible in hosting the college reps, so we ask that if a student is signed-up to attend a session, he/she must be there and be on time!  (It is the student’s responsibility to check with his/her teacher regarding missed class work or for homework assignments while attending a college visit.)
