College Readiness Events - Workshop Wednesday's

The variety of our college access events and services will be delivered virtually through Zoom and Webex platforms this year. The office is orchestrating a number of student workshops for the purpose of exposing students' to college access information that will assist with matriculation to college, employment, or enlisted military service. This particular day throughout the weeks to come is designated as Workshop Wednesdays. These sessions would begin in the month of October.

  • The college readiness events will be held live as well as pre-recorded. In the event students and parents are unable to join any of the live sessions they would be directed to review on demand the information they have missed by clicking on that particular session under the registration link.
  • Students and parents will continue to receive notifications regarding events through social media by our communications office as many of the events will be shared periodically through the PGCPS website. Also, professional school counselors will receive ongoing updates from our office to ensure all resources and information is shared and current. 
  • Students and parents will also click on the registration link for the workshop session below pertaining to the session of interest. Once we capture your registration information an email will be sent with virtual instructions.
