The Saint Francis High School School and College Counselors work with students, parents, teachers, and administrators to provide a comprehensive academic, college, and career counseling program. The Saint Francis Counseling Department provides assistance to families, students, and teachers to promote student success in all areas and develop the skills which prepare students for college and career readiness. The counselors are divided by the alphabet allowing students to make a connection with the counselor they will have for the duration of high school.
We recognize that each student has unique aspirations when it comes to school and college. Beginning in 9th grade, our counselors will help formulate a plan based on the student and family's goals. Our School and College Counselors continuously monitor your child's progress and provide support and assistance when needed. Additionally, counselors hold meetings with each family at least twice a year to discuss your child's progress. Saint Francis High School also uses the college and career counseling program Naviance to provide additional career and college support.
