Life After York Q&A: Parent to Parent Advice

on College and Other Paths to Success

Thursday, February 28, 2019 from 7-9pm
at York Commons


This will be the 5th year the PTSA Academic Boosters (PTSA-AB) Committee is running this program, and this year PTSA-AB is working with the York HS Counseling Department. The program was formerly called College Q&A: Parent to Parent Advice.


Geared for parents of York sophomores and juniors, Life After York Q&A is led by fellow York parents who have experience with the college application process as well as other post high school plans.


The evening is held in a rotation-style format, where parents move between topic tables every 20 minutes.  Parents have the opportunity to gain practical tips from more experienced parents on these round-table topics:  (CLICK ON TOPIC TO LINK TO 2018 HANDOUT)
