The Postsecondary Support Center at Solorio is focused on ensuring that all students and families have the guidance and resources to explore options, engage in meaningful conversations, and develop a concrete postsecondary plan for life after high school graduation. We encourage you to explore the resources included on this site and to contact any member of the postsecondary support staff with questions or requests.
Rigo Padilla Pérez was the heart of Solorio High School’s DREAM Team for Undocumented Students and Allies. As the Undocumented Student Support Specialist and Post Secondary College and Career Coach, he was our fearless Sun Warrior for nine years. His passing has left a void in our community and has inspired us to continue his legacy of advocacy and activism. We will always remember Rigo with love by dedicating the DREAM Team Scholarship that he founded in his honor.

Life Beyond High School
Learn.Plan.Succeed. is a Chicago Public School initiative that focuses students, families, and schools on the idea that a successful high school experience means that students have a viable plan for life BEYOND high school. This initiative recognizes six postsecondary pathways - College, Employment, Gap Year Program, Job Training, Apprenticeship, and Military. With support from school counselors, college and career coaches, teachers, trusted peers and family, students should define career goals and develop plans during high school so that they graduate with a concrete postsecondary pathway.
