Post-secondary Campus Opportunities

Visiting a college campus is a great way to see for yourself what campus life is like. It is also an opportunity to talk with school personnel and get questions answered about majors, financial aid, and more! Below is information we've received in the PHS Counseling Office regarding opportunities to visit college campuses and special programs offered. 

Please be aware, this list is not all-inclusive. If there is a college and/or program you are interested in, we strongly recommend viewing their website and/or contacting them for information regarding visits and/or special events.
