Counseling and Human Services Department hosts Student/Parent Post-Secondary Education Readiness Night

A student and parent postsecondary education readiness night was held on Sept. 26, 2017 at Wyalusing Valley High School, in collaboration with the Counseling and Human Services Department. Invited school districts included Wyalusing Valley High School, Towanda Area High School, and Northeast Bradford High School. Drs. Julie Cerrito and LeeAnn Eschbach, along with University of Scranton graduate counseling students currently enrolled in practicums and internships, delivered the program in a “work station” format where students and their parents moved from station to station to discuss relevant topics. Topics focused on preparing students and their parents for what comes next and included how to: choose a college; pick a college; complete the Common Application; understand the college application process and how best to visit a college. They were offered a crash course in financial aid, SAT/ACT information and a guide to college housing. The goal for the event was to reach 100-150 students and their parents to assist them in their planning and decision-making.
