College Planning

The Catholic High School is committed to helping each student gain admission into the colleges of her choice. Our college counseling services begin with a first meeting in freshman year, when we discuss and analyze with students their PSAT test scores and identify strategies that will prepare them for admission into, and success during, college. In both personal counseling sessions and additional class meetings, we continue these discussions each year until students become seniors. We also hold parallel meetings with parents of each class, discussing these issues and also ideas pertinent to college financial planning.

Parents and students may make appointments to discuss their academic progress and college plans at any time. We think that it is never too early to think about college and to plan for it. Please allow us to be helpful guides in that process.

For parents and students who are interested, the links on the College Counseling website are divided into key areas of the college admissions process. On these pages, you can acquaint yourself with many of the areas that you and your daughter will deal with when she applies to college. As always, if you have any questions, or if any of the information presented is unclear, please do not hesitate to call the Guidance Office for clarification.
