🎓 Bernard Zell 2023 High School Fair 
Mr. Keitel, BZ High School Counselor
This past Wednesday, September 13, Bernard Zell hosted its Annual High School Fair in our beautiful Pritzker and Pucker Family Gymnasium and Performance Space. We were delighted to have a wide variety of twenty Chicagoland high schools present their schools to our 5th through 8th grade families. 
Over 50 Bernard Zell families attended, along with a majority of our 8th grade students. Each family had time to interact with admissions directors, principals, teachers and BZ alumni in order to learn more about each school and hear about their programs. Many parents reported that they didn’t know there were so many public and independent options available and they were positively impressed with the number of schools as well as the quality of each institution.
The school representatives reported how much they enjoyed meeting our students and families and remarked about how many people expressed appreciation to them for coming to BZ.
We were happy to welcome the following schools:
  • Beacon Academy
  • Bennett Day School
  • British International School of Chicago
  • Chicago Academy for the Arts
  • DePaul College Prep
  • Lake Forest Academy
  • Lake View High School
  • Lane Tech College Prep High School
  • Latin School of Chicago
  • Lycée Français de Chicago
  • North Shore Country Day
  • Northside College Prep

  • Walter Payton College Prep
  • Rochelle Zell Jewish High School 
  • Roycemore School
