For Parents of Seniors:
We look forward to seeing you at Graduation festivities. We will automatically send out final transcripts to seniors’ chosen colleges for those seniors who have logged their decision into Naviance Student. IMPORTANT: please remind your senior to complete the required SENIOR SURVEY in order to be included in the printed program for the June 1 Senior Recognition Ceremony. If they do not complete the survey, they will not be included.
For Parents of Juniors:
We have asked all students to come to their next counseling meeting prepared to talk about their evolving college list, resume, and summer plans (including tackling college application essays). We highly recommend that juniors register to participate in our June 17 College Essay Workshop and/or our annual College Application Bootcamp, scheduled for August 1-4. After Bootcamp, the next round of meetings will be Senior Check-Ins, which extend through the first month of the 2022-2023 school year. Seniors will have a session regarding college application nuts and bolts in early September and parents should mark their calendars for Senior Parent Night on Wednesday, September 7 at 6:30 p.m.
For Parents of Freshmen and Sophomores:
Official college counseling meetings will commence for Juniors in late fall/early winter. Students (and their parents) are always welcome to reach out to their assigned college counselor with questions. All parents of freshmen are invited to join us for our annual College Planning Night – 9th Grade Parents at 6:30 p.m. on May 11, 2022 in the Upper School Lecture Hall. This event will include an overview of Providence Academy’s college counseling program and a look at what is ahead for your student during their sophomore year. We will offer helpful information about what families with freshmen should be doing now, and also give you the gift of knowing what not to worry about (just yet!).
To All Parents:
It is an honor and privilege to serve at Providence Academy and to work closely with students– and with families–committed to Faith, Knowledge, and Virtue and to help them find success in this college journey. We do this knowing that, in every college process and for any set of college criteria, there are many winning outcomes for our PA Lions!
