College Counseling at Saint Mary's is grounded in developing meaningful partnerships with our students to encourage personal reflection and self-awareness as they progress through high school and on to college. We support our students every step of the way through intentional programming in Seminar classes, beginning in ninth grade. Individual meetings begin upon request by students in ninth and tenth grades and are expected to continue monthly beginning in the winter of junior year. As students move confidently through the college search process, we work closely as a supporter and advocate through the applications process and eventual matriculation. Students are encouraged to bring self-reflection and authenticity to the college search as we work together to identify strengths and talents, promote academic and personal growth, and help foster their independence. We invite parents to participate as partners on this journey by attending meetings, programming, and being available for conversation along the way.
