"I received this specific support from Bright Futures.
I thought other schools might have had it - but they don’t.
They don’t have anything like it."

-Sadie Ortiz, PCHS Class of 2019/U of U Class of 2023
It's impossible to overstate the milestone event that is just months away for seven Park City High School graduates.

After seven years of relentless, grueling work, these students, who are among the inaugural cohort of PCEF's Bright Futures (a college coaching initiative), will become the first in their families to collect a college diploma.

Let's Celebrate...

  • Lindsay Carreto
  • Jenifer Celestino
  • Isaac Cortes
  • Cristopher Mora
  • Sadie Ortiz
  • Heidy Onofre
  • Yetza Sanchez

These students will walk across the stage to receive their hard-won college diplomas, and step into their futures.

Thanks in part to PCEF and BF, they'll be armed with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in a future we can't begin to imagine.
