College Placement

The College Counseling team at Holy Child provides an individualized approach to college counseling which results in matriculation to universities ranging from small liberal arts colleges to large universities, from premier art schools and music conservatories to technical institutes and some of the most selective institutions in the nation and abroad.

Holy Child’s individualized approach to college counseling involves three major components:

We know our students

Beginning in freshman year, the Director of College Counseling hosts informative seminars with parents. The office works closely with Upper School administrators and faculty to get to know each of our students. During the spring of junior year, students begin a college counseling class, taught by the Director of College Counseling, which continues through the students' senior year. This gives the Director of College Counseling the opportunity to get to know students on a more personal level. Each student and her parents continue to meet with the college counseling office throughout the college application process, as needed.

We know colleges

In addition to working with students, our experienced College Counseling team has relationships with many college admission officers and works to familiarize them with Holy Child’s rigorous and unique curriculum. Additionally, we invite leaders in college admissions to campus in order to provide students and their parents with the most updated information about the college application process and beyond.

Colleges know Holy Child

Each year, over 100 college admission representatives visit Holy Child's campus to meet with students. The College Counseling team develops relationships with college representatives to ensure they best understand Holy Child's academic rigor and extracurricular offerings.
