College & Guidance Counseling
Almost all of our students go on to some form of college education upon their graduation from RC. Indeed, in recent years, our graduates have earned acceptance to some of the best colleges and universities in the country. And so the mission of the Roselle Catholic Guidance Department is to guide each of our students through their high school academic career and help each of our students prepare for the college application and acceptance process.
We provide academic, personal and college counseling to students. Students are assigned a Counselor in their freshmen year that will follow them to their senior year and aid in the college application process.
Our counselors meet with their students on a regular basis to monitor their academic performance and systematically to plan their academic program from year to year.
Of course, students have concerns other than academic ones, and our Guidance Department addresses those concerns in a number of ways.
We provide individual counseling and provide outside referrals when needed. We also have a Peer Leadership Program, whereby, in a small group setting, carefully trained upperclassmen, under Guidance Department supervision, help the freshmen and sophomores adjust to high school life.
The Guidance department facilitates the following events for students and parents during the academic year, College Financial Aid Night, Junior Guidance Night, Career Day and the SAT Prep Program.
In these and other ways, our Guidance Department works to make the RC experience as positive as possible for each individual student.
