Postgraduate Center


Ponderosa's Postgraduate Center

Located just inside PHS's Counseling Office, the Postgraduate Center provides a variety of resources for our students. This will be the central location for college visits to PHS.  Students will have the opportunity to meet with college representatives by appointment to learn more about the institution and to get questions answered.  With the recent purchaces of Chromebooks and iPads, students will have an additional area to work on their Naviance Tasks or to search for postgraduate opportunities.  Students can also seek advice in searching for scholarships, filling out college applications, build a resume and even practice interview skills.  All a student has to do is schedule an appointment through the counseling office, and someone will be available to help with the process.  

Upcoming Opportunities

PHS is hosting a college fair on September 28, 2017 from 1:30-2:30pm in the Main Gym for juniors and seniors.  Students must be registered for the event in order to attend.

Deadlines for Requesting Transcripts for College Applications 

In order for PHS to send transcripts, all requests need to be made through Naviance.  As application deadlines approach, the amount of time it takes for colleges to accept our submission is often delayed.  In order to meet deadlines, we ask that all requests are made a minimum of 10 business days prior to the application deadline.  Please keep in mind that additional documents (letters of recommendation, teacher and counselor evaluation forms) beyond a transcript are required for applications being submitted through the Common App and must be completed prior to the transcript request deadline.   Below is a table to help guide you of when your requests are due.
