St. Mary's offers a comprehensive college counseling program. The college counseling staff visits freshman and sophomore classes to discuss the landscape of college admissions and answer questions. Students begin meeting individually with their college counselor junior year. We work with each student to help them reflect on their strengths, values and interests while at that same time help them research and identify a group of colleges where they believe they will thrive.
