College Counseling

Every student is known and loved. These St. John’s School core values are also guiding principles for the Counseling Counseling program. Our balanced approach to college admissions focuses on helping students find colleges that fit their interests, values, and needs while also prioritizing their well-being.
St. John’s School’s College Counseling provides a personalized, student-centered approach which informs and supports students and their families. The School seeks to develop the whole person in preparation for a lifetime of personal fulfillment and contribution to society by offering students opportunities for development of a sense of self-worth and of personal responsibility.

We urge students to deeply consider what matters to them and explore criteria that they believe is important in searching for the right college fit. Over the four years, College Counseling seeks to empower students to direct their own college search through exploring their interests, reflecting on their values, and finding their own voice.

Given our partnership with Challenge Success, SJS College Counseling's approach is individualized to each student's development; we facilitate the process so that students find a college where they will be engaged, in class and out, by all that the college has to offer. We look forward to embarking on this college admission and application journey with our students and their families, and supporting them as they seek excellence and balance in all that they do.
