Academy at Palumbo has been partnered with Villanova University through the Office of the Mayor and Phillygoes2college to support Philadelphia high school students in the college application/decision process.

College Immersion

The Academy at Palumbo - Villanova College Immersion Program connects communities and supports Palumbo students in their college application processes. Palumbo students and Villanova students will be invited to attend enriched academic and social functions at the high school as well as at the university. Students will attend workshops designed to disambiguate the academic and social processes involved in applying to and eventually attending college. At Villanova, students will go to a real college class, hear invited speakers, workshop their Common Application Essays with professional writing tutors, learn about spending a semester outside America, and form relationships with Nova students.
