|Pattonville College Academy celebrates senior participants|
|Monday, May 13, 2019|
Several Pattonville High School seniors celebrated completing their participation in the Pattonville College Academy, a program that gives first-generation, college-bound students support and knowledge about the college planning and search process.
Each student who graduated from the College Academy received a $100 sponsorship funded by the Pattonville school-business partnership office, Naviance and several business partners. The school-business partnership department also supplied funds for an annual scholarship for a College Academy participant. Senior Bryan Lopez won this $500 scholarship through a drawing of all participants.
The Pattonville College Academy covered goal setting, college resume writing, how to compare colleges, how to start the college search, college admissions, scholarships, financial aid, letters of recommendation, essay-writing tips and ACT test-taking tips. On the final day of the academy, students visited area college campuses. Sponsors of the program were Commercial Bank, Fred Weber Inc., James Hutchison Forth and Snyder P.C., Jostens, Ranken Jordan Pediatric Hospital and SSM DePaul Health Center.
