The world of college admission is in constant flux and can often be confusing and overwhelming. Saint Stephen’s students benefit from our small student-to-counselor ratio and personalized attention beginning in Middle School with our annual 8th Grade College Expo, followed by increased access, individualized information, and college exposure throughout high school. Our college counselors are actively involved in industry organizations, engage in active research and maintain strong relationships with university admission professionals. Saint Stephen’s has a strong record of sending highly prepared students to colleges throughout the country and abroad. A majority of our students attend college with merit scholarships as well, further highlighting the academic and personal strength of Saint Stephen’s graduates.
The College Counseling Office provides a full range of support for students and their parents as they navigate the college search, application process, and transition to college. We facilitate college selection by maintaining the focus on the needs of the student and their family, while empowering students to take ownership over their college admission process.
Throughout high school, our counselors spend significant time with students in various grade-level appropriate activities and meetings, encouraging them to explore the characteristics of colleges that will best satisfy their ambitions, talents, and personality while providing an academic environment that will enable success far beyond the gates of Saint Stephen’s. The college counseling staff partner with students and empower them to make informed choices, to be self-advocates, and to utilize strong organizational skills throughout the college admission process.
