College Counseling is available to students and their parents throughout the students’ high school years. Counselors work with students in the classroom as well as offer college and scholarship workshops for parents and students. In their junior year, students participate in the College Boot Camp, a day of different intensive workshops that aide them in the college application and scholarship processes. In the fall and spring students attend college fairs to enable them to discover new colleges and universities and establish relationships with college admission representatives. Ursuline also hosts college admission representatives throughout the year on campus.
During the junior and senior years the counselor schedules individual conferences to help students define their goals and interests and assist them with their college choices. The Counselor guides students in the college planning and admissions process and serves as liaison between the student and the college admissions office.
