College Counseling

While a student’s College Counselor will work with him most closely during junior and senior year, the student will have a dedicated College Counselor from the moment he starts at Jesuit. The College Counselor will assist each student in his goal of making informed and reasonable decisions regarding his college career. Through both group and individual meetings, the College Counselor will help each student navigate the college admissions process and prepare him for the transition from Strake Jesuit to higher education. Additionally, College Counselors will keep abreast of the latest information and strategies regarding college admissions by fostering relationships with institutions of higher learning.  Click here to make an appointment with your College Counselor.
