Prep Charter Guidance Services
The Prep Charter High School counseling department offers guidance and counseling services to all students from their first day in their freshman year up through graduation in their senior year. We believe that counseling is very important in supporting the academic component of the high school. The goal of the guidance process is to meet the individual needs of each student and to help students achieve a productive high school experience. We meet this goal by providing both planned and informal activities at each grade level throughout the school year. Services are designed to help students with their educational, vocational and social development.

Freshmen Orientation: Students and their parents attend an informative assembly the summer before their freshman year. At this assembly students receive a Prep Charter handbook with all of the school policies, and the school administration walks them through the handbook. They also receive a tour of school, and learn what is expected of students in the 9th grade at Prep Charter.

Freshmen Transition: In the beginning of the school year, all freshmen receive a guidance lesson from the school counselors to help them with their transition to high school. This lesson will cover topics such as schedules, report cards/transcripts, academic and personal expectations, study skills, and an introduction to college/career counseling.

College Application Process: In September, the counseling department meets with all seniors to educate them on the college and post-secondary application process. Students learn about the processes and timelines for sending transcripts, test scores, and counselor and teacher recommendations to colleges or other post-secondary institutions. Find out more...

College Representative Visits: Admissions representatives from colleges and universities visit our school to discuss their programs and admissions information. Find out more...

College Planning Process: Guidance counselors meet with all juniors to begin discussing college and post-secondary planning. Students learn what characteristics to look for as they are visiting or reading about various institutions. A planning packet is distributed to students the second half of their junior year to help them with this process.

Financial Aid Workshops: In December, a financial aid workshop is held for parents who are interested in learning more about sources for post secondary financial aid. A second financial aid workshop will be held in February to walk parents/students step by step through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. Find out more...

College Fair: During spring, a College Fair is held to assist students and their parents with the college and post-secondary selection process. Representatives from numerous colleges and post-secondary schools are available to discuss their school's programs and application processes.

Health Fair: In the spring, a Health Fair is held to help educate students about health topics relevant to today's teens. Representatives from various organizations provide students with information relevant to teens to help them become active participants in making informed decisions about their physical and mental health.

Web page: The counseling office also makes sure that this web page is constantly updated with current information about admissions testing, scholarships, programs, open houses and useful web links.

Parenting Teens Online: This is a monthly publication that offers information to help make the often not-so-simple job of raising teenagers easier by providing expert advice in a straight talk format on the primary issues and challenges impacting teens and their parents today - from MySpace to binge drinking, hooking up to acne, tattoos to SATs, and much, much more. If you have a child between 12 and 19, get the scoop on what's happening with your kids before you need to know. The best-prepared parent is savvy, aware, and on top of the latest teen buzz.

Bullying Policy: The Preparatory Charter School of Mathematics, Science, Technology & Careers has adopted a bullying policy and its prevention/intervention in order to effectuate compliance with HB 1067 (PA), amending "Article XIII-A Safe Schools" in the Pennsylvania School Code of 1949, that requires each school entity to adopt a policy relating to bullying.

Social Networking: Students must take caution when using social networking sites such as Facebook and Myspace.

Counseling Support Services: Prep Charter has an open door policy in which students are welcome to visit the counselors at any time for help with any concerns or problems they may have.
