Academic Advising and Counseling

Jr/Sr HS Department of Academic Advising and Counseling

The Department of Academic Advising and Counseling seeks to nurture and foster the intellectual, spiritual, and emotional growth of every PCS student. In partnership with our families and faculty, our academic advisors and counselors serve as advocates for the students entrusted to our care. Our offices maintain an open door policy, so as to make students feel welcomed and treasured.

It is our sincere desire that every student who graduates from PCS has an understanding of their unique gifts, and a desire to add richly to society through their intellect, talents, and hearts for service. To that end, we seek to educate students on the endless possibilities of higher education and provide numerous opportunities for them to reach their full potential.

 

Academic Help

 TUTORING - PCS offers tutoring for all students after school from 3:00-4:00.  Teachers are available to help with homework or re-teach concepts. There is no fee or appointment necessary.

 LEARNING LAB - The Labs are an academic support class, available to all students, that provide a variety of supports  based on the needs of the student. The purpose of the class is to  focus on organizational skills, homework completion, skill deficits, and general student support.

AFTER SCHOOL -
