College Counseling

The College Counseling program is designed to help our students and families navigate the intricacies of their post-secondary aspirations through individualized planning with the college search and application processes.  Our focus is helping students find the best fit for their future needs and goals.  Cura personalis, 'care of the individual', is a hallmark of Jesuit education and is a cornerstone of the College Counseling program. Each student at the Prep is aided in his growth by the caring guidance of his counselor, and the school’s goal is to find a post-secondary opportunity that is an appropriate fit for each senior. 

College Room

The Prep's College Room hosts representatives from nearly 150 colleges and universities across the country and around the world each year.  The space is designed for both group presentations and can be used for individual conversations.
