***College Application Prep (CAP) Workshop***
Hey, rising seniors, how would you like professional guidance and support with your college applications this summer?! PVPSS is absolutely thrilled to offer the College Application Prep (CAP) workshop, and we are very fortunate to have two of our finest staff members running the program. Kelly Baranick, PVPHS head counselor, and Tim Hall, PVPHS English teacher and writing specialist, will combine their skills to support our students in getting a head start with:
  • College Searches
  • Creating A Balanced College List (Safety/Target/Reach Schools)
  • Building a Resume
  • Writing College Essays
  • Filling Out Applications
This three-week workshop (not a graded course for credit) will be offered in both PVPSS semesters, allowing students to choose which session works best for them.  It will take place on the PVHS campus from 1:30 - 3:30pm on all PVPSS school days. Your applications could be finished by the time we start school in August!!
PVPSS is excited to offer asynchronous online courses this summer!  We will have this option for World History, US History, American Government, and Economics.  Each class will be guided by one of our excellent PVPUSD teachers, using a program called UC Scout to help navigate students through the curriculum.  Although students are not required to attend virtual sessions, the instructors will provide plenty of optional support.  They will offer daily office hours for Q&A, as well as a weekly review session, all through Zoom or Teams.  Please note that the calendar timeline is the same for both in-person and online courses (Semester 1: June 21 - July 8, Semester 2: July 11 - 28).  Students will be expected to check online for daily updates/announcements and meet all deadlines provided by the teacher.  Students should only take this course if they are self-motivated, independent learners who can handle the responsibility of an asynchronous class.
