PACAC Camp College 2022
For the past 8 years, PACAC has provided its Camp College (CC) experience for students in the Commonwealth to come together and learn about the College Admissions process. CC has brought together College Admissions experts from around the state to provide this vital information and guidance, specifically targeting first-generation, low-income, underrepresented student populations. CC has always been free and focused on inclusion, access, and success in the college admissions process.
This year, Camp College will be hosting two in-person sessions: Camp College West and Camp College East. Both in-person sessions will be held on Tuesday, June 28 from 9am-4pm. If the in-person session does not work with your student's schedule, there will be an online experience later in the summer. More information will be released at a later date.

This program will be held at Villanova University June 19-23, 2022.

Video Production and General Computing Assistant
I have had the great pleasure of working with a STEM student since he was a Junior at Downingtown High on video production and general computing assistance. I cannot believe it but he is now graduating from Penn State (after a 6 year stint with SLEC), and I am looking for another interested student who Christian can train before he goes out into the wide world.
