College Counseling

St. Mary's Academy offers a comprehensive college counseling program to ensure our graduates are well prepared for college. 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.

Highlights of the college counseling program include:
  • Parent information nights
  • College financial aid night
  • Individual meetings with parents and students
  • More than 140 college representatives visit SMA

The college counselors contribute regularly to the monthly Parent Association News with information about the college landscape and topics of interest to parents as students prepare to apply to college.
