Counseling

COVD-19

Emotions, anxiety, and academic concerns are to be expected during this challenging time. Our Guidance Counselors are available by email to help you with any questions or concerns you may have. Please understand our guidance staff will be working remotely and will do their best to respond as quickly as possible to the students. The Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and their staff continues in prayer for all of you. Stand strong Knights!

The guidance staff directs students in preparing for the PSAT, SAT, and other standardized tests. Counselors also provide in-depth guidance academically, emotionally and spiritually.

All students who possess a GPA of at least 3.5 , and who meet other necessary qualifications, are welcomed to join the National Honor Society at both the junior and senior level of Immaculate Heart middle school and high school.

Historically, Immaculate Heart students have been offered generous scholarships academically, athletically, and personally. Scholarships typically average approximately $1 million each year depending on the size of the graduation class.

The high school counselors specialize in guiding students through all grade levels by meeting one-on-one with each student twice a year. Additionally, all junior families are required to attend a college planning meeting to receive an admissions packet, which leads them through the application process. The counseling department also assists parents as they navigate the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) submission process.  

 

The counseling department promotes an environment where students are encouraged to take an active role in their future. As a result students feel empowered to apply to their college of choice, oftentimes long before early admissions deadlines.
