A summer event you won't want to miss!

16th Annual Summer Institute
July 15-16, 2019

Shepherd University
301 N. King Street
Shepherdstown, WV 25443
www.pcacac.org/summer-institute

SESSIONS
We intentionally limit the number of registrations at the Summer Institute to provide a personalized setting for training, networking opportunities and leadership development.  If you are a new or mid-level college admission or counseling professional, we invite you to reserve your spot now. The two-day Institute offers a lineup of sessions that promise to motivate and educate professionals on both sides of the desk (sessions offered will be similar to last year's program).  Plus, we're "throwing" in a little bowling and corn hole fun (pun intended)! 

Follow up the Institute with a tour of Shenandoah University on July 16, then on to Mount St. Mary's University and Hood College on July 17. Sign up for college tours during registration.

REGISTRATION
Space is limited to 125 participants, so don't delay. Register by June 28!

Need to wait until the new fiscal year to pay? Select the "Invoice me" option at the end of registration and pay by July 5.

PCACAC/NACAC GRANT

The National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) has joined hands with PCACAC to provide grant money in support of school counselors who work with students in public school systems or public charter schools. Grant recipients will receive free Summer Institute registration and a PCACAC membership through September 30, 2020. Preference will be given to those serving economically disadvantaged students and/or students from underrepresented populations. 

www.pcacac.org/2019-si-grant

Apply by June 16.  The Grant Committee will review applications and notify applicants of their decision by Monday, June 24.

Grant applicants may register for the Summer Institute now and select the "Pay later" option. If selected as a grant recipient, we will apply a credit. If not selected, payment will be due by July 5. Invoice reminders will be sent until credited or paid.

HOST THE 2020 SUMMER INSTITUTE

Partnering with your college or university brings over 100 new and mid-level college admission and counseling professionals to your campus and furthers our mission to support and advance college admission professionals like yourself as you guide your institution, students, and families in an ethical manner.
