Each student is assigned a college and career counselor who mentors and guides her all four years. From helping to build a class schedule that fulfills requirements to workshops on writing effective college essays and filling out financial aid forms, we’re here to help each step of the way.
Freshman year starts with a retreat where students are guided on a journey that helps to develop their intellectual passions and offers opportunities to participate in community service, leadership, and sports (if so inclined).
From then on, we follow up with individual guidance on selecting courses and activities that fit her college aspirations and personal interests. We answer questions about Honors and AP options, discuss SAT/ACT prep, suggest options for summer enrichment programs, and support our students in every way on their journey toward college.
Advising and guidance
Carondelet’s team of professional college counselors get to know each student personally and help them figure out what to consider as they start their college search. Counselors pride themselves on providing current info on the changing landscape of college admissions.
Our counselors maintain relationships with college and university admissions officers all across the country. During the school year, more than 130 college representatives visit our campus to meet with students and answer questions.
Search and application support
Our counselors guide students through the complexities of the search and application process, providing expertise and ensuring that students are aware of the opportunities available. We host numerous educational workshops for parents and students and work with students as they write their essays, request letters of recommendation, and, eventually, evaluate options once they’ve been accepted.
Getting the most out of college
With the help of our professional counselors, Carondelet students are fully prepared for what to expect in the first year of college and the kinds of issues they may face.
