At our private Catholic school, high school students are known by first name by our counselor. Our students are encouraged to share their interests, goals, dreams, and challenges with our high school counselor, always at the ready to listen and guide.
Students have access to “The HUB,” where they can meet with our counselor or just visit for study or down time. Practicing an “open door” policy, our counselor makes it a priority to develop a relationship with every student and takes a vested interest in each.
We provide a holistic approach to college counseling, exposing students to an array of experiences that assist them as they explore “best fit” institutions based on interests, college size, major preferences, and more. Our counselor guides students in building a career profile as they navigate the college search journey. We welcome numerous colleges to campus each year, students take field trips to college fairs and to college campuses, and we host career days.
While our school history shows an impressive college acceptance rate to top colleges and universities across the country, along with impressive scholarship awards, we measure our success by the matches we make between our students and the institutions that will launch them into a career or vocation in which they can joyfully thrive as Christian leaders ready to transform society.
