Comprehensive Counseling Model

It is the goal of the college counseling program at Sacred Heart to educate students and families about the intricacies of the college search, application, and selection processes. This manifests itself into a comprehensive preparation program over the four high school years. In line with our five Sacred Heart goals, we help to empower our students to find the best fit for college placement. College is a place for students to grow personally in academics, in career planning, and in community involvement. Sacred Heart students take control of their college process early on, rather than find the college process taking control of them.

Mrs. Ashley Fullen, Mrs. Theresa McCoy and Mrs. Eileen Day are available to meet one-on-one with students and families to help facilitate the college process. College correspondence is communicated to families through Naviance as well as through the upper school weekly e-newsletter.

Freshmen

Freshmen take a wellness class for one quarter, through which they are gently introduced to the college process with a focus on student success in academics and in extracurricular involvement with an emphasis on curriculum choice.

Sophomores

Sophomores  take a wellness class for one quarter with a focus on self-awareness regarding skills and interests along with decision-making. Students are encouraged to start a broad college search through college visits.

Juniors

Juniors are scheduled into a semester-long college counseling class with Ms. Ashley McGinnis. Time is allocated to career development and college search. During the spring semester, students complete resumes, two college essays, meet with the college counselor for 1-1 planning meetings, and begin to finalize their college lists.

Seniors

Seniors are also scheduled into a college counseling class for the first semester with Ms. Ashley McGinnis. Students use class time to finalize the various aspects of their college applications with direct guidance from the college counselors. Students maintain constant, open communication with the college counselor and teachers throughout the process for guidance.
