Students are provided individualized guidance and support throughout their four years at Pope Francis Prep, designed to facilitate student achievement and guide a student’s social and emotional development. Student support is always available through highly-available faculty, attentive counselors, and caring administration. Our guidance office staff is committed to supporting each student by meeting regularly throughout the academic year. In addition to being assigned a dedicated guidance counselor, who is available to provide both academic and emotional support, students meet with the college counselor: beginning as early as freshman year. The college counselor works with students and their families throughout the college search process offering college research assistance, navigating the college application process including essay writing, completing financial aid paperwork, and meeting deadlines throughout the enrollment process.
The college search process at Pope Francis Preparatory School is more than internet searches and tracking deadlines. Our Developmental Guidance curriculum is designed exclusively to assist a student with finding success in selecting the best fit for college.
We believe in a collaborative approach with our college counselor, the student, and their families. It is highly personalized, purposeful, and supportive.
Students meet to discuss goals, values, and interests. Those meetings are augmented with visits from college admissions representatives and workshops for the student and their families. It’s all designed to bring a student’s goals into view and we take pride in the range and caliber of colleges that our students attend. Throughout the four years at Pope Francis Prep, we remain committed to providing high quality, caring support to our students and their families as they navigate the college search process.
