For many upperclassmen, life outside of Pattonville is right around the corner, and the time to start preparing for college is now. Figuring out what you’re going to be doing after high school isn’t as easy as it sounds, and it can be very stressful. Pattonville’s college counselor, Ms. Julie Kampschroeder, was able to give some instructions.

– Where should students begin their college seach?

“The first place a student should start is by picking a major. Once they have a major, they can narrow down their college choice within minutes by searching for schools on the College Board website.”

– What advice do you have for students about college fairs?

“You can sign up online and print out a barcode that you can show colleges at the fair. This allows them to pull up your information.” The North County College Fair is Thursday, Sept. 26, at 1 p.m. in the Pattonville gym. About 80 colleges will be there.

– How do students sign up for the ACT or ACT Prep classes?

You can sign up for the ACT on their website. The evening classes at PHS are free and start four weeks prior to every test date.”

The review sessions meet twice a week from 6-8 p.m. Pattonville also offers an ACT Prep course.

– How do students find out about scholarships for college? 

“Merit scholarships are based on GPA and ACT scores and the college will tell you how much money you can receive. I would check the College Center scholarship drawer. I would also go to all the links on my webpage.”

Students can also visit other websites like national scholarship database on Fast Web, Zinch, or Scholarships 4 School
