The mission of Philadelphia Academy Charter School is to prepare students to achieve the highest level of their potential academically, socially, and morally. As the college and career counselor, I work with students at all grade levels to explore career and college opportunities, and help them make decisions and goals that will allow them to reach their highest potential. I coach them through their entire decision-making process, and ensure that they are best prepared for life after graduation.
Information about colleges, trade schools, the military, college entrance exams, programs for students with disabilities, and much more is readily available in the college and career office. There are several computers available for students to perform college searches, scholarship applications, and other career-related work. The ASVAB test is given at PACS in both the fall and spring of each school year. The PSAT test is offered for 10th and 11th grade students every October. PACS also offers CollegeBoard SAT prep at least three times a year, at a discounted price. College representatives visit on an almost daily basis every fall, and there are two college fairs every school year.
Communication is key! PACHS students and parents all have access to Naviance Family Connection. It is extremely important that all students (especially seniors) log into this program often. Besides college searches, career searches, personality tests, and scholarship info, all college visit announcements will be posted on the Naviance homepage. Students are expected to register for these visits through the Naviance site. Naviance and e-mail are the best ways for me to communicate important events and deadlines, so please check each of them often!
