Seniors | Class of 2020

SENIORS: You should be working on college applications! Many colleges and universities require a Fall application deadline. The best way to learn about a specific college is to set up a campus visit.  You are allowed 4 absences/school year for college visits. 

SCHOLAR SNAPP–Seniors, are you looking for more scholarship opportunities? Common App has made it easy for students to access scholarship opportunities directly through your Common App admissions application. Apply to multiple scholarships without having to re-enter your information each time, instead, you can reuse your information from one application to another. Fill out one application and simply import it, or “snapp” it, to a ScholarSnapp profile to use again next time. Scholar Snapp works with many scholarship providers –here’s how to join:

1. Connect to Scholar Snapp in the Financial Aid Resources tab of your Common App.

2. Log in to your Scholar Snapp account or register for a new account.

3. Give permission for Common App to access and transfer your data to Scholar Snapp. That’s it! You’ll be notified when the transfer is complete and will be taken back to your Common App account.

OPPORTUNITY FOR FEMALE SENIORS: Jennifer Wallace, PCA Parent, and a partner at KPMG, one of the Big Four Accounting Agencies, has an offer for senior girls.  KPMG has a Future Leaders program specifically for female high school seniors that are planning to enroll in a 4-year program after graduating high school. It is an application process and if selected, a student will receive the following:

  1. A scholarship of $10,000 per year for four years of college 
  2. A pairing with an executive woman mentor for one year 
  3. A three-day leadership development retreat held this coming summer at KPMG Lakehouse, our firm's state-of-the-art learning center in the Lake Nona community of Orlando, Florida.

TRANSCRIPT REQUESTS: PCA is partnering with PARCHMENT to make ordering transcripts easier for you. Seniors were sent an email last Spring during Explore Week on how to register for this service. Sending transcripts electronically to most colleges is free thru PARCHMENT. If you find there is a fee, please see Mrs. Zambeck to order a paper copy instead. The site also has a search tool to help students find colleges that match their interests.
