For a family, the route to college can be confusing and full of unexpected obstacles. St. John’s College Counseling Office provides comprehensive support to our students and their families throughout the entire college selection 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 a number of resources available to help simplify the complex college application process. Beginning in junior year, students and parents are given access to Naviance, a web-based resource that contains information about colleges and scholarships. The site also contains 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 colleges and universities across the country to provide our students the opportunity to meet with a representative from a school they may be interested in attending.
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.
