PICC - The Planning and Information for College and Career Committee


The Planning and Information for College and Career Committee (PICC) is a volunteer group of parents who assist the North Andover High School Guidance Department in the planning, researching, and implementation of college and career related activities and events at NAHS. The committee began 12 years ago with a small group of parents who were going through the college search process with their own seniors. They found the sharing of information helped them better navigate this process. There are now over 30 members on the PICC Committee and that number continues to grow as new parents sign on to help with this effort. Some of last year’s PICC/Guidance events included the College Rep Visit Program, College Coffee Talks for parents, Alumni Luncheon and Seminar for Seniors, College Bound Juniors Night and Scholarship Knight.


The PICC committee welcomes new members and encourages parents of freshmen and sophomores to consider joining. As colleges become more and more competitive, it’s never too early to learn about the ins and outs of the college search process. If you are interested in learning more about PICC please e-mail them at picc@northandoverpublicschools.com.

PICC, the Planning and Information for College Committee is a volunteer group of parents who assist the NAHS Guidance Dept. in the planning and execution of college related events throughout the year.  Without the volunteer efforts of PICC, many of these events would not be possible.  

We are currently looking for parent volunteers to assist with Scholarship Knight. (see below) If you are interested in helping, please reach out to Dianne Stevens at stevensd@nak12.com or Debbie Conti at contid@nak12.com for further details.


The event is for seniors who have applied and been awarded local area scholarships. They are recognized at a reception and ceremony in their honor.  Scholarship recipients are invited to the awards ceremony not knowing which scholarship they will be receiving. Donors are invited to present the scholarships to them.  It is one of the most beautiful and eagerly anticipated events of the year, but it requires many hands to carry it off. Please volunteer if you can. Thank you!
