PA School Counseling Services


The college journey is as much a learning experience as are traditional classes. During the planning process, students will develop important lifelong skills in initiative taking, decision making, self assessment, and responsibility. The college search is in essence a research project, which requires students to look within themselves for many of the answers. Students will need to learn to identify and assess themselves and what is important to them, to set priorities, and to make major decisions.
