Preparing For College

Applying to colleges can be daunting - we want to reduce that load for you. Below you will find four helpful steps to prepare yourself for the college application process.

1. Start Early

Most students don’t start seriously looking at colleges until senior year. This means that they are searching for colleges, applying for scholarships, and finishing high school coursework while trying to spend time with friends before graduation.

Even if you are unsure of your major, starting your search during your sophomore or junior year can save you time and stress. So start earlyit helps!

2. Visit Colleges on Your List

Visiting Patrick Henry College tells you far more than a website or brochure. When you visit, be sure to notice the campus community, the spiritual life of the students, and the depth of the faculty and staff.

3. Don't Neglect High School

College research is important, but don’t forget: they will ask for your high school transcript. So study hard, pay attention in class, and finish strong.

4. Apply Early in the Year

Here at Patrick Henry College, we waive the application fee before December 1st. In addition, early admitted students receive priority consideration for available scholarships.
