College Counseling

Mrs. Ann Geissler - Director of Guidance/College Placement

The College Counseling/Placement Office works with students and parents to council and advise students on their college choices.  Each student is advised and assisted individually throughout the college process.  The College Counseling/Placement Office houses a variety of resources to assist students with post-high school planning.  Computer programs and printed materials provide information on colleges and occupations.  Even thought the official start of the college process begins early in junior year, the College Placement Office services all students in grades 9-12.

The College Counseling/Placement Office will not only provide materials, it will also assist in all aspects of the college process.

The philosophy of the College Counseling Office is to help students achieve in all areas of growth in their journey towards their college experience.  The College Counseling Office will:
  • Assist students in the college process throughout their high school career.
  • Impart knowledge to students & their families on the current state of college admissions & procedures.
  • Guide students in making informed decisions on their college choices.
  • Build relationships with local, national, & international schools to increase communication between colleges & Oratory Prep.
