College Counseling

The College Counseling program prepares students to pursue higher education. Across all grade levels, students are introduced to multiple planning tools, resources, and opportunities for advising which help to develop their knowledge of higher education and preparedness for the college application process. By exploring areas of interest, discussing possible career paths and taking a unique interest in each student, the College Counseling program aims to live true to the Jesuit ideals of education. We embrace the cura personalis, seeking to find the right place for each student after his graduation from Jesuit appreciating his individual gifts, circumstances and potential to ensure a great college experience.

Preparing for College

  • College Prelection: An evening exploring topics from roommate challenges to the various temptations college might provide. It gives families a framework for very important (and often difficult) conversations. It is designed to be experienced by the young man and his parent(s).
  • Holding On - Letting Go: This event provides parents a candid conversation about the emotional and physical changes that happen as their son leaves the house for college. It is a very powerful (and popular!) experience.
  • Individual Family Meetings: We encourage each family to schedule a time to meet with a college counselor. These meetings are personal and allow all avenues of school choice, finance options, etc., to be discussed.
  • SCOIR Subscription: All students are provided accounts to SCOIR, a college admissions network that allows students to connect with colleges, take interest surveys, upload application information, view recent applicant data for Jesuit students, and more! Counselors provide training to students and parents during guidance sessions throughout the years.
  • Senior Parent Meetings: These large-group settings share with parents the global atmosphere of college admissions and help them gain a better understanding of what Jesuit can do to help.
  • Student Guidance Meetings: Each week, students meet with their counselor/s to talk about the application process and receive group and individual support.
