Pennsylvainia is the location of this year's annual College Trip. The Class of 2017 is visiting a variety of schools over Nov. 1-5 as part of their College Bound class, with their college counselors. The junior class tours the schools, talks with admissions directors and college students and evaluates each school they visit. The PA college visits will give the students a feel for the types of schools they would be comfortable attending. They'll be able to apply what they learn from this trip to other schools they'll visit. Their evaluations will be used as part of their course paper and lay the groundwork for finding a"fit" as they begin college tours with their parents later this year and next.
