More than 90 percent of middle school students say they plan to go to college, yet only two-thirds of students actually end up attending. If you are the parent of a high school senior, the week of Nov. 6 is an important one — Utah College Application Week (UCAW). The goal of this event is to provide every Park City High School senior with the opportunity to complete at least one college or university application during the school day.
Throughout this week, counselors place special focus on students who will be the first in their families to attend college, low-income students, and students who may not have considered applying to college.
UCAW will take place in the high school’s College & Career Center within the Counseling Center. Some colleges waive application fees during UCAW. If students qualify for free and reduced lunch, and wish to apply to a college that does not accept fee waivers, the counselors, with the generosity of the Park City Education Foundation, have additional financial support available.
There are specific times available for students needing help with college essays, scholarships, and financial aid. Out-of-state college applications are also available.
For more information, contact the PCHS Counseling Center.
