St. Agnes challenges young women through exceptional academic preparation and transformational experiences to lead with integrity, joy and a commitment to social justice. These pillars help guide our mission in the college counseling department.  Through transparency and collaboration, we seek to provide age-appropriate conversations surrounding the college application process and post-secondary plans. 
Department Philosophy :
  • We seek to inspire students to lead the way as they steer their own college search, exploring interests, reflecting on their values, finding their own voice and where they fit. 
  • Beginning in the spring of Sophomore year, students are assigned a college counselor who will begin advising them on their class schedules and embark on college application conversations.  
  • Junior year brings a more in-depth college counseling program, including Junior parent meetings, one on one advising as well as our Junior Family presentation in the fall.  
  • Senior year we walk alongside students as they lead the journey through the college admissions process with programming including Senior Family Night; one on one advising and senior workshops offered in the summer. 
  • Our college counseling team has a collective 80 years in higher education academic advising, college admissions and college admissions counseling and we strive to make the college search and the college application process thoughtful, individualized and truly valuable to our students and families.
