Incoming freshmen students and their parents also learned more about Lincoln-Way and what to expect at the high school level. Students and parents had an opportunity to meet teachers, explore elective course offerings, ask questions about education programs, and high school expectations.

In gymnasiums and field houses students were able to learn about the various extra-curricular programs offered at Central, East, North and West and talk to student athletes, club members and activity sponsors about how they can get involved in after school activities, such as Chess Club, Student Council, and Mathletes and athletic programs such as football, cheerleading, basketball, and softball.

Dr. Steve Provis, principal of Lincoln-Way Central; Dr. Sharon Michalak, principal of Lincoln-Way East; Dr. Mark Cohen, principal of Lincoln-Way North; and Dr. Monica Schmitt, principal of Lincoln-Way West; all challenged their new students to pick at least one activity or sport that they want to try when they arrive at their high school in August.

Parents and students were given individualized packets of information that explained the process of how the schools determines which course to place students in by using the Explore Entrance Exam, recommendations from the feeder schools, and results of a math prognosis test.

On-line registration for the 2015-2016 school year was reviewed and specific information given to parents to be able to register their students for classes on-line.
