Welcome to the new PACAC website

The path forward

A mission of support, advocacy and professional development

The journey each student takes while moving through high school and into the future may be unique―but all young adults can benefit from helping hands along the way. Our mission is to provide guidance and resources for students and their families while promoting supportive professional development for high school, college and independent counselors. Along with our members, thousands of students and families throughout Pennsylvania count on us to advocate for access to quality post-secondary educational opportunities.
