With COVID-19 shutting down schools, Liberty High School in Bethlehem decided to turn its annual college planning night into a virtual web series throughout the summer for parents of sophomores and juniors.

WLVR’s Tracy Yatsko has more.

Liberty school counselor Andrew Uhler is trying to get ahead of the curve and give parents and students as much information as possible.

“Knowledge is power so we recognize the fact that while some of our students are applying to college, they may be the first in their family to ever go through the college process or even if they aren’t, they may be the first in their sibling line and it’s been quite a while since their parents may have applied to college and it’s a scary process,” said Uhler “

The virtual sessions are held on Wednesday nights through July with topics from the admissions process, financial aid and even niche topics like athletic recruiting.

“There’s also a Q&A that goes with it as well. So parents, if they’re live with us, they’re able to type into the Q&A box. There’s also the ability afterwards to reach out to us and get any questions answered,” said Uhler .

Uhler says he hopes to post the series online for parents who are essential workers who aren’t able to join live.

The college planning series is also open to parents at Freedom High School.
