The Mission of the Palos Verdes High School College and Career Center (CCC) is to provide our Sea King community with a wide variety of information and resources for college and career planning. Our goal is to meet the information and planning needs for our students as they move toward graduation and beyond. In collaboration with the academic counselors, the CCC works to ensure a comprehensive college going culture for all PVHS students and provides a full range of college admission information and activities including the following:
The CCC provides a comfortable environment where students can come to obtain information on two and four-year colleges and universities, standardized tests and test preparation and application procedures. Students are also welcome to attend college information sessions hosted by more than 100 college representatives visiting the PVHS CCC every Fall! The Center also has material on community based and national scholarships, financial aid information, as well as tools for investigating careers and/or college major planning. Students and parents are encouraged to take a look at any of the hundreds of current reference books in the CCC library! Students are welcome to stop by the CCC during lunch or after school to utilize the resources or may schedule an appointment should they have more than just a quick question or require additional assistance.
EVENTS AND WORKSHOPS
The CCC hosts free events for students/parents throughout the year such as the Class of 2016 Common App Boot Camp, an Out of State College Fair, College Wednesday Workshop Series, Career Exploration Lunchtime Series and a College Entrance Exam Information Night to name just a few. There are also workshops on essay writing, the UC Application and Financial Aid information and application assistance.
