Collegiate Success

Our college advisors are here to help guide students through every step of the college admission process.

Among the services offered by St. Joseph’s Academy’s Counseling Center is a comprehensive college counseling program encompassing all grade levels. Two full-time college advisors assist students with college and scholarship applications, recommendation letters, transcripts and the admissions process.  

Individual counseling sessions are offered as well as opportunities for parent-student meetings and classroom visits. College-resource information is available in the Counseling Center, through Naviance Succeed, a college and career database and tracker for students and parents, and the SJA website.

SJA’s college advisors coordinate visits from various college representatives throughout the academic year and also work closely with the National Association of College Admission Counseling (NACAC) to assist in sponsoring a national college fair for SJA students and their parents.
