Travel & Housing

The Academy program takes place at:
Ravinia Festival Campus

John D. Harza Building

201 St. Johns Street

Highland Park, Illinois, 60035

 

The Ravinia Festival Campus is accessible by public transportation using the METRA Union Pacific North Line that runs from Chicago to Ravinia. Students exit the train at the Braeside Station, and then walk a short block into the Ravinia parking lot.


Relocation to Chicago

Students come to the Academy from all corners of the world --China, Korea, Venezuela, and across the United States. Upon acceptance in the program, many students are faced with the challenge of finding housing near the Academy which is located in Highland Park, a suburb of Chicago.  Please give yourself enough time to relocate and find housing and search for the right public or private school before the semester begins. Academy staff will assist in recommending area schools.
