College and Career

One of the most important decisions our students will make is what to do after graduation.  Our College and Career Success work focuses on encouraging students to explore their options for post-secondary education, and provides them with support and access to tools to help them accomplish their goals.

College & Career Adviser Support

PEF provides support to all Hamilton County College Access & Career Advisors so they can work more effectively with high school students and their families. Through the College Access Network, PEF staff lead half-day professional development sessions to  provide the platform for advisers, counselors and community leaders to share best-practices and to share data on college matriculation & retention. PEF staff also work one-on-one with Advisers to implement group programs (college tours, class presentations, parent nights); and, provide one-on-one advising to students and parents in areas of college selection and application, career development and financial aid.
