Most high schools in our area (including PHS) have a “college access advisor” who works alongside our counseling department. They are recent college graduates who are hired through the University of Utah and then placed in selected high schools around the state. College advisers seek to help more Utah students attend college. Working alongside school staff, advisers assist students with navigating the college admissions process.
