The Portage County College Access Network is a partnership between Kent State University, the Community Action Council of Portage County, Kent City Schools, the Ravenna School District, and the Portage County Educational Service Center.
The goal is to assist local middle school and high school students in completing high school and continuing their education. PCCAN strives to bridge the gap between students and the increasing need for postsecondary education, the consistent preparation and significant financial resources needed, and coordinates with school counselors to provide comprehensive assistance.
Activities include informing students and parents about the higher education application process, scholarships, and financial aid. Seniors who graduate from high school and transition to a postsecondary institution are eligible for a book scholarship.
Participating students who meet the criteria for the Postsecondary Enrollment Options program can be admitted to Kent State University and receive supportive assistance.
Students must apply to the PSEO program.
