The Palos Verdes High School College & Career Center provides a comprehensive college guidance program to our PVHS Sea King Community. Students and families are introduced to, and invited to engage in, college guidance activities starting in the 9th grade. Students are encouraged to communicate and begin even more intentional work with their PVHS counselor and the College & Career Center through the 11th & 12th grades so they are well-informed and confident in making plans for their post secondary years. 


The PVHSCCC is proud to provide our community with the most current information and trusted resources to meet the information and planning needs of our students and families. All PVHS students have access to college admission counselor visits every fall. The PVHSCCC recommends students take advantage of our resources early in their high school career, and families begin getting familiar with college planning information as their student transitions to high school.


Together with our outstanding counselors, the PVHSCCC works to ensure a comprehensive college going culture for all PVHS students. While a majority of our students matriculate to a two or four year institution, the PVHSCCC strives to meet the unique needs and paths of each individual student.


To find more in-depth information by grade level or general college admission resources, please utilize the links in the right-hand menu.


The Palos Verdes High School College & Career Center is located in Room 318 on the NW corner of Sea King Park. We look forward to assisting our students on their journey through high school to wherever their hard work and dreams lead them. GO SEA KINGS!                                                                              








The Palos Verdes High School College Career Center has partnered with Compass Education to offer at-home, computer-proctored Digital Adaptive SAT, ACT and SAT practice tests at no cost through Compass’ Online Testing Center.


While the Digital Adaptive SAT will give students the opportunity to experience what is to come in the fall of 2023 with the new Digital Adaptive PSAT/NMSQT, and later this spring with the Digital Adaptive SAT, the regular ACT and SAT practice tests match the current paper/pencil, linear versions of the tests.


These practice tests provide our students with just that… practice before taking a college entrance exam!  REGISTER for any of these free, practice exams BY SEPTEMBER 15TH!
