Counselors' Corner

The Counselors' Corner is a series of
articles that are written by the guidance department to keep our families informed about a variety of things that are important to your daughters. Since we work with all of our students, the entire department is responsible for contributing articles from time to time. We try to keep our articles brief and timely. These articles also appear in the weekly Tiger Tracks sent to parents each Friday.

College Fit Workshop

On Monday, April 20th, St. Agnes Academy and Strake Jesuit will host a small college fair and presentation in the Parsley Center at Strake Jesuit from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM.  The presentation will cover the idea of “fit” and will be led by representatives from Trinity University, University of Missouri, The University of Tulsa, St. Louis University and The University of Oklahoma. A list of all fair participants is listed on this flyer. This event is open to any interested junior and her parents.

Junior Parents - Student Reflection A
 
Just as we asked you to complete the Parent Reflection, we ask your daughter to complete two reflections during her college application process. Student Reflection A gathers initial information about college thoughts and your daughter is asked to reflect on her time at St. Agnes thus far. Your daughter’s counselor will use this information to better understand your daughter’s needs. In addition, the reflection is very helpful when writing a recommendation letter. Please encourage your daughter to provide thoughtful responses as her counselor really wants to get to know her better.

If your daughter has yet to complete Student Reflection A, perhaps you can encourage her to work on it over the next few weeks! We ask the students to complete the reflection and turn it in by Friday, May 1st. If she has trouble finding the document, please click here.

Freshman Parents - ERB

Please note the ERB test is scheduled for Thursday, April 23rd.

Ninth grade students should report to school no later than 7:45 AM.

The ERB is an achievement test that measures English, reading, writing and math skills.  We give this test to 9th graders to assess their progress since the beginning of the year.  In preparation for the test, we recommend your daughter get a good night's sleep and have a hearty breakfast.

The schedule for Thursday, April 23 is as follows:

Arrival:      7:45 AM
Dismissal:  2:30 PM (3:15-3:30pm for students testing with extended time) 

Students should bring #2 pencils and something to read. Also, bring a snack and bottled water.
Please have students leave computers and back packs at home. We ask that students NOT bring cell phones into the testing center.
