College and Personal Counseling

The counseling center consists of four guidance counselors who provide Jesuit students with academic and personal guidance counseling at each grade level. The junior and senior counselors also are college information specialists.

Beginning freshman year and continuing through the senior year, each Jesuit student receives both individual and classroom guidance counseling on topics relevant to each grade level. Our counselors assist each student in arriving at good decisions regarding college and career choices, as well as personal and academic issues.

See below for a link to the monthly newsletter, Family Connection/Naviance, the School Profile, classroom guidance session information, and college counseling resource links.
