College Counseling

Our Approach

Choosing a college is an important decision and an exciting opportunity. With more than 3,000 colleges and universities in this country, students are faced with endless opportunities for their future.

Intelligent planning, an open mind, personal assessment and an organized search are essential for a sound choice, a choice that maximizes opportunities and offers the highest possibility for personal satisfaction and growth. The responsibility for these tasks rests primarily with the student, but others can and should be involved. Parents, counselors, teachers and friends, we all partner in the effort.

St. Cecilia’s college counseling program emphasizes a highly personal approach, with structured and sequential college selection programs beginning in the sophomore year. Our program offers:
  • Small-group workshops
  • Full-day college programs
  • Individual student meetings
  • Test prep sessions
  • Parent college nights
  • Financial Aid Night
  • Mock admissions committees

We also have two college fairs held on campus: The Catholic College Fair and College Fair morning – with more than 100 colleges in attendance– providing many opportunities for college exploration and support. Students and parents also receive a handbook created by SCA’s College Counseling Office outlining in depth the college selection process. St. Cecilia Academy also hosts college representatives throughout the school year before school from 7:20 to 7:50 a.m.

It is our belief that there are many college “matches” for each student and that it is our role to facilitate the discovery of these matches.
The 74 members of the class of 2019 are attending 47 different colleges in 21 states and were offered more than $17.8 million in scholarships. Ninety-seven percent of the class of 2019 will attend four-year institutions immediately after graduation. Two students are taking a gap semester or year.
