School & College Counseling
The School & College Counseling Department at Mount Saint Mary Academy is comprised of a team of school counselors who encourage the successful academic growth of each student based upon their individual strengths and needs. Our counselors are assigned a small group of students and have the privilege of guiding those students through their years at the Mount. This unique style allows each student to receive personalized attention and instruction that fits her individual needs and talents.
Students are guided through the dynamics of a college preparatory environment beginning in their freshman year. Freshman and sophomore seminars offer students valuable information on study skills, time management, standardized testing prep, resume building, and college and career planning. School Counselors assist students in individual meetings as they select courses and consider their future academic and professional paths. As students progress through their high school careers, each is assisted in the college search, consideration and application process by the Director of College Counseling. College skills classes and one-on-one consultations allow students to best assess their college and future choices, taking the necessary steps to gain admission to their top choices as well as receive scholarships.
The School & College Counseling Department also believes strongly in supporting and informing parents during their daughter’s high school years. Regular communications and resources are made available, and annual parent meetings are hosted by the Department to best support parents.
