Counseling and College Center


Counseling & College Center

The Counseling and College Center of St. Francis High School shares in the general philosophy of the school in its respect for the uniqueness of each student and her right and responsibility to achieve her potential.  Our commitment is to educate the whole student by providing an environment where students achieve their highest potential through intellectual, social, and spiritual development.

We strive to encourage individuals to grow in awareness of their potential and to become lifelong learners with the capacity to be successful in a rapidly changing world. A distinguishing strength of the St. Francis Counseling and College Center is our model of assigning students a consistent counselor to work with throughout the entire high school experience. This connection nurtures our students as they transition through the academic and social expectations of high school. Additionally, this four-year perspective makes the college counseling process more personal, enabling our students to find the best individual college fit.
