The School Counseling Office is committed to working with our students beginning in freshman year to guide and encourage them as they navigate throughout high school. Counselors work collaboratively alongside each student to ensure that he/she is successful in our college preparatory high school. We are dedicated to ensuring that our students are well-prepared as they tackle any challenges they may face while working to achieve their goals in high school, while also assisting them in developing a groundwork for success in their higher education aspirations.
Students are assigned a guidance counselor at the start of their freshman year who will work with them throughout their four years at Xaverian. Each guidance counselor is skilled in addressing the spiritual, social-emotional, and academic needs of students through individual and group counseling. Counselors guide students in choosing classes to ensure they have a strong academic transcript for their college applications. Students meet with counselors at least four times a year in scheduled meetings, with drop-in meetings and additional appointments available when requested or indicated. Counselors work collaboratively with faculty and administration to provide streamlined support for our students. Counselors are also available to parents in order to assist with any questions or concerns they may have.
