College Planning


The College Counseling program at Pentucket Regional High School believes that discovering good matches between students and their college selections is what the college admission process is all about.  We believe the process requires close and honest communication between the student, parent and counselor.

It is the process of s elf-discovery which leads the student to taking ownership of the ultimate outcome of the college application process.  The journey to this end may be somewhat challenging but through the process emerges into young adulthood.

The student is at the center of the college admission process and learns to take charge of it.  It is the students who must contact colleges for appointments, register for standardized tests, prepare and submit applications and meet all deadlines

The parent and counselor role is one of encouragement, support and guidance.  The process and selection of a college will provide the opportunity to develop skills and understanding to help them with challenges later in life.

Financial Aid

Planning for college expenses is one of the biggest financial projects that a family can undertake. Four years of college can cost tens of thousands of dollars. But you can find a way to make paying for college manageable. Parents and students must work together to make college affordable. Obviously, the earlier you start, the easier it will be. However, it's never too late to make a difference.

Mapping out financial aid can be a daunting task.  You can begin by reading this article title "What is Financial Aid".
