Guidance and College Prep

Our graduatesGuidance services are an integral part of the student's educational experience at St. Jean's. The purpose of these guidance services is to help the student adjust to and succeed in high school as well as to facilitate her development during these four years. High school years mean change, choice, new freedom, and responsibilities for adolescents. The guidance department provides the following programs and services in an effort to meet student needs:
  • Orientation for 9th graders and transfer students.
  • Individual counseling for academic and personal concerns.
  • College Prep and Awareness
Counselors are specifically assigned to each grade level. Additional services are provided for sponsored students. A counselor from the Archdiocesan Drug and Alcohol Program (ADAPP) works with the guidance team.

The counselors assist students and their families who may be in crisis or may have situations which impact on the student’s ability to participate, to learn, or to do well in the school environment. These services include meetings with families, short term counseling, and assistance with referrals.

Parent Workshops provide information on the particular opportunities and challenges of the various stages of their daughter’s development.
