The purpose of this website is to help, guide, inform and support students and their parents as they move through the college admissions process. Applying to college is one the most exciting (and nerve-racking) experiences for a young adult because a momentous decision is made in the process. For many students and their parents, the importance of the decision, the sheer enormity of information available on the web, and the stress and fear of rejection intimidate and paralyze them. This is what our office seeks to avoid…especially with the creation of this site. At PPAS, college admissions is student driven and school supported. That means that the student takes responsibility for their own college applications and our office provides support for them along every step of the way. This site is the home base of that support. On the site, you will find documents for our students that we created (such as questionnaires and informative reference documents) as well as links to important websites for both college and financial aid. Please explore the site with your family and get familiar with it as we will be directing you here often.
