• Compass Learning Login 

    Due to system upgrades and efforts to move toward a single sign on system, we have a new Compass login format/password in effect for both students and parents.

    The student’s format is:  2-digit grad year + first letter of first name + first letter of last name + 6 digit Student ID. So a 2014 graduate named John Doe with student number 012345 would be: 14JD012345.  Their passwords are the 6-digit date of birth MM/DD/YY (ie, 123185).
    A parent’s login is the same as the student’s with a p at the end.  An example would be: 14JD012345p. The password is peoria150. The new login/password format is effective immediately.

    Caterpillar: Building Careers at Manual Academy

    As part of Caterpillar's ongoing focus on the skilled trades, a group at Caterpillar Building LL recently partnered with Manual Academy in Peoria, Ill., to help revive the school's manufacturing technology curriculum. In 2010, the program was kicked off with a donation from Caterpillar of $10,000 worth of new welding helmets with breathing apparatus. A new curriculum was developed and other tools and supplies were donated. In the program's first year, 45 students attended. Now, the program attracts over 100 students annually.
