Pottstown High School seniors who are thinking about their plans for post secondary education are already doing some scouting of potential schools.
School Counselor Mrs. Kelly Leibold and Mrs. Susan Pritt College and Career Counselor have taken students on a number of college fact finding tours. Seniors have made visits to the campuses of Lincoln University, Drexel University, University of Pennsylvania, Ursinus College, and Alvernia University.
They enjoyed learning what each institution offered and explored the layout of each campus. Students also met with an admissions counselor to ask questions. Later this month they will visit Kutztown University and Montgomery County Community College.
The knowledge they gain from their visits will be helpful on December 15th when PHS will hold the 2nd annual Instant Decision Day. Over 20 colleges will have representatives at the high school to offer on site acceptance to seniors who apply at least 3 days prior to the event. This event is free and exciting as students have the possibility to acquire several acceptance letters before the end of the year and see their hard work pay off. Mrs. Pritt said, we are excited to be able to give our students an opportunity to be on a college campus in person and see first hand what to expect when they make the transition to the next level of their school education.
