Driver Education

Marist High School works in conjunction with the Chicago Public School Driver Education program at Bogan High School by making classroom instruction available to our student body here at Marist. Driver Education is taught by an instructor from Chicago Public Schools and the class is not a part of Marist’s curriculum. Classroom instruction is made available at Marist High School as a convenience to our student body throughout the year. Starting dates of each class are posted once they are made known to us by CPS.

Forms should be turned in to the student life office at Marist along with a $50 classroom fee payable to Marist High School. It is the student’s responsibility to enroll in the class. Due to overwhelming call volume in the past, all information will be posted online; no calls will be taken. Students will be placed in the class according to the order in which forms are received. A class roster will be posted online once the class is filled.

Students should be prepared to meet Monday through Friday for six weeks; however, the exact schedule will be set by the instructor on the first day of class. During the school year, classes begin at 2:30pm and end at 4:00pm. Students must attend each class to meet state requirements for classroom instruction. Students who are involved in after school extracurricular activities can only take a class that coordinates with their team or club responsibilities. Students must be 15 years of age prior to beginning date of each class. Seniors, juniors, and sophomores will be given preference. Freshmen cannot enroll in the class until second semester.
