College & Career Counseling

We believe that with the right resources every student has the ability to reach their college and career goals. PCS graduates have many options for their future. Some will go on to full-time employment, other students may choose military service or trade school, and over 90% of students continue on to college. Through individual and grade level meetings, online resources, college events, and additional information, students will have the knowledge and encouragement they need to make decisions about life after high school.
