The college counseling program at McQuaid Jesuit prepares students to pursue higher education. We begin the college planning process early and aim to develop our students’ knowledge of higher education and preparedness for the college application process. We examine areas of personal interest, discuss possible career paths and take a unique interest in each student.
The college counseling program strives to live true to the Jesuit ideals of education. We embrace the cura personalis, seeking to find the right destination for each student after his graduation from McQuaid Jesuit with an appreciation for the individual’s gifts, circumstances, and potential to ensure an enriching college experience that ultimately will lead to living a life of consequence.
The mission of the school counseling program at McQuaid Jesuit is to provide all students with a comprehensive experience centered on engaging curriculum that encourages the highest level of student achievement through their growth in academic, career, and personal/social domains. In concert with teachers, administrators, parents, and the community, the school counselors will assist the students in becoming successful lifelong learners and contributing members of society.
