- Presented by PHEAA: Borrowing for Higher Education
Following up on the highly successful “Covering The Gap” webinar series, PHEAA now offers a series of one-hour webinars focused more specifically on the borrowing aspect of higher education finance. A significant percentage of students find that grants, scholarships, work-study, savings, PA529, and other funding sources are insufficient to meet the total cost of attending postsecondary school. In an ideal situation, borrowing would not be necessary; yet, considering the lifelong value of a higher education, borrowing can be a smart investment. Linda Pacewicz and Dan Wray of PHEAA’s PA Forward Private Student Loan Program will provide an in-depth look at federal and private education loans, to include calculating the amount to borrow, understanding loan terms and conditions, navigating the application process, keeping an eye on debt levels while attending college, and effectively managing debt after graduation. The discussion will also provide a glimpse into the world of credit decisions. Please register below to join us for one or more of these informative presentations. Active participation is encouraged via Q&A!

- The High School will be offering the PSAT (or the Preliminary SAT) on three dates: October 14th, October 29th and January 26th (each student may only take the test once — please see important notes at the bottom) for 10th and 11th grade students. The PSAT provides the best practice and the most useful tools in preparation for the SAT, which is the standardized test for getting into college. Some of the benefits include: a detailed online score report, individualized Official SAT Practice on Khan Academy, and scholarship opportunities for 11th grade students.

As High School counselors, we work closely with students and their families, addressing academic, career, social and emotional issues. Our profession is built upon the idea of the dignity, worth, and independence of each student. The ultimate goal of all high school counselors is firmly based on the human worth of the individual. Our goal at Wilson High School is to use our training to help each student become self-aware and responsible for his/her decisions, actions, and future; to help each student confront and resolve the problems and issues that might limit growth, and to help each student realize his/her unique potential. Our work is defined by three Cs: we Counsel students; we Consult with parents, teachers, and administrators; we Coordinate educational programs and referrals to other sources of help. We want to encourage students and parents to contact us – in person or by phone – with problems and concerns; we want to provide support, help and, when indicated, appropriate referrals for our students and their families.
