College & Career Counseling

Exploring Interests & Developing Options

We believe that every student has the ability to reach their college and career goals with the right resources. PCS college & career programming will provide each student with the information and encouragement needed to enable them to pursue their goals after high school graduation. 

Each student at PC will have many options for their future. Some will go on to full-time employment, other students may choose military service, and over 90% of students continue on to college after graduation. Through individual and grade level meetings, online resources, college events, and additional information, students will have what they need to make the right decision about life after high school.

Each year our students are accepted to competitive colleges and universities. Here are some of the schools our graduates have attended in recent years:

College Representatives Visiting PC 

Representatives from a variety of four-year and two-year colleges and universities, technical schools, and military recruiters will be on campus to meet with students during lunch period. Students should take advantage of this opportunity to meet with these representatives when they visit to gather information and learn about the options they have after high school.

Listen to morning announcements for information about schools that are visiting, and stop by the table in the hallway at lunchtime.
