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. (See College Counseling) 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.
