For a family, the route to college can be confusing and full of unexpected obstacles. The St. John’s College Counseling Office provides a comprehensive college counseling curriculum that educates students and families about all aspects of the college search and application process.
Ours is a student-driven process, and communication among the student, parent, and counselor is encouraged. We foster an environment that emphasizes the unique talents, interests, and skills of each of our students as they determine the path they will take after graduation.
At St. John’s, students and parents have several resources available to help simplify the complex college application process. Beginning junior year, students and parents are given access to Naviance, a web-based resource that contains information about colleges and scholarships. The site also includes information on schools to which St. John’s students have applied in the past.
Throughout the school year, St. John’s hosts numerous admissions counselors from national colleges and universities to provide our students the opportunity to meet with a representative from a school they may be interested in attending. St. John’s spring college fair for sophomores and juniors draws representatives from across the country.
The counselors also host evening events for parents covering a wide range of topics in the ever-changing world of college admissions, including applications, recommendations, financial aid, and scholarships.
Whether our students need assistance writing an essay, preparing for an interview, or deciding what college or university to ultimately attend, we are here to help.
