College Counseling

In addition to an academically rigorous program with opportunities in extracurricular pursuits, All Saints High School has a full-time counselor with over 30 years of experience  who helps students navigate the college admissions process.

All Saints is committed to helping students and parents prepare for and succeed in the college admissions process. Because we have the ability to provide personal attention to each of our students, our counselor is able to recognize and recommend schools that are especially good matches for students, to act as a personal advocate by writing letters of recommendation, and to serve both parents and students throughout the college admissions process. These personal touches are valuable components of our program that cannot be easily duplicated.

The process of college application starts early. It begins as students establish themselves in the routine of school life in ninth and tenth grade, becoming involved learners, developing strong study skills, exploring different interests, and engaging in the life of the school community. Then they are ready to take specific steps toward college exploration. College admissions prep work begins with juniors. At this point, students are developmentally able to think about college in a meaningful way. The counselor’s focus is to help guide students and parents to learn about a variety of schools, create a list of reasonable options, complete the application process, and select a collegiate program in which the student can thrive.

The All Saints difference is how the counselor is invested in making sure the student meets success at All Saints and beyond. The commitment to each student is long-term, and the counselor’s focus is to ensure that every student’s next big step in life is the perfect fit.

College Board code for All Saints is 444 337.
