College Counseling

College Preparation

It is the mission of the Counseling Office to guide and support students and their families through the college search and application process, working closely with the Director of Counseling and College Counseling. JPII works with students as individuals to understand who they are beyond the classroom and to help them find a college that will provide a challenging and comfortable environment for them on all levels. From the moment students step on campus as freshmen, all students have access to standardized test preparation for the ACT the SAT, and College Essay Writing Workshops.

In order to help students begin to understand and prepare for the college process, counselors meet with students and parents in individual academic conferences beginning freshman year and continuing through junior year. The college counseling process begins freshman year as students are encouraged to understand that college preparation is a compilation of their entire high school academic and co-curricular experience. JPII counselors seek to build an open relationship with students and their families in order to understand all of the factors involved as the college list is developed. Their role is to assist and advocate for students and to make sure that choices (including course selections) are informed and appropriate. 

Our Mission...

to guide and support students and their families through the college search and application process, working closely with the Director of Admissions and College Counseling.
