College Guidance

The Schools of the Sacred Heart offers a comprehensive college counseling program to help guide students and their parents through the complexities of the college search and application process. The goal of the program is for the college counselor to help each student identify his or her personal gifts and strengths in order to select a college that will serve their needs, enhance growth, and provide a foundation for the future. Students receive assistance in organization of the college search, application and admissions procedures, PSAT and ACT preparation and testing, interviewing techniques and scholarship application. To complete their high school experience, Schools of the Sacred Heart students participate in a two-week full-time career internship program their senior year.

Academy of the Sacred Heart and Berchmans Academy students are welcome to meet with the college counselor at any time and are encouraged to visit throughout their high school years.



College visits are open to all Upper School students during free period and lunch. 10th-12th grade students are allowed to visit recruiters during class time with permission from their teacher and the College Counselor. Permission slips are located at the College Counseling office and the Berchmans Main office. All recruiters are in the library unless specified otherwise on the weekly schedule. Parents are welcome to meet with college recruiters.
