We trust that whatever you have chosen to pursue after graduating from PCS is fulfilling and successful for you. We hope that you will continue to have a connection with PCS, and keep us updated on your post-secondary adventures and opportunities. Why do we hope that? Well, you are the fulfillment of the PCS mission, the reason why we exist in the world. We strive not only to help our graduates prepare for and enter college, but also to thrive – in whatever career or life choice they embrace.
You are as important to us now as you were when you were a student at PCS, maybe even more so. PCS helped you attain the skills and the confidence needed to set and achieve goals. You excelled - in big and small ways - and you defined your own accomplishments. We look forward to you sharing the challenges and successes that have unfolded in your life since your PCS graduation – we want to celebrate with you, just as we did when you attended PCS. Like proud parents, it makes us happy when you reach for the stars and succeed!
You are also critical to our process for shaping and improving our current program. Through surveys and on-site visits to PCS, we learn about what you liked and didn’t like about PCS, and how we can strengthen our program for future PCS graduates. We welcome your mentorship of current students and willingness to network with recent graduates. As you did when you were here, your support of younger PCS students – sharing advice and tips on how to succeed – is still appreciated. So please, stay connected and involved! Choose the ways that work best for you, but above all else, find your way back to visit your PCS family from time to time.
