Olivet Nazarene University to open satellite campus at Young School
Homer Community Consolidated School District 33C is teaming up with the Village of Homer Glen to bring an institute of higher learning to the community.
Superintendent Kara Coglianese announced at the school board meeting on Jan. 26 that the school district and village are entering into an agreement with Olivet Nazarene University to open a satellite campus here in Homer Glen.
“This is an exciting partnership for the entire Homer community,” said Coglianese. “Not only will residents have an opportunity to further their education at a highly-esteemed university near their homes, but Homer 33C will be able to expand its professional development opportunities for staff.”
The university, which operates a campus in Bourbonnais, offers programs in education, nursing and business at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
Its satellite campus at Young School will offer such programs as:

  • Master of Arts in Education: Reading Specialist
  • Master of Arts in Education: Curriculum and Instruction
  • Bachelor of Business Administration
  • Bachelor of Applied Science in Management
  • Teacher Leader Endorsement
  • English as a Second Language Endorsement
  • Master of Business Administration (MBA)
  • Master of Organizational Leadership

All classes will be held in the evenings and not interfere with Homer 33C classes and programs.
In exchange for Olivet Nazarene University using Young School as a satellite campus, Homer 33C employees (as well as Village of Homer Glen employees) will enjoy a 20 percent discount on tuition. Those pursuing doctorates will receive a 10 percent discount.
“I’m very excited about this partnership,” said Homer Glen Mayor George Yukich, who attended the board meeting to sign the partnership agreement with Coglianese and Don Perry, senior director of admissions for Olivet Nazarene University.
Homer Glen already has a strong high school and grade school system, said Yukich. Now it has a college.
“We’ve got it all,” he added.
