Individualized guidance & support

College Pennants


St Joseph High School's Office of College and School Counseling includes a professional staff of experienced counselors dedicated to the college, career, and personal needs of our students.

Counselors work closely with administration, faculty, and parents to provide a supportive environment for all students.  From the moment freshman year begins, formal meetings between students and counselors take place throughout the year in small group, seminar, and one-to-one settings. This active environment of the office in the life and success of each of our students continues through the four year at St Joseph High School. 

The College Counseling office uses the SCOIR platform to prepare our students for post-secondary, college and career planning. It is designed to assist students and their parents/guardians in making informed decisions about college opportunities and career choices. This online resource allows students the ability to research colleges, view statistical and historical data on other SJHS students anonymously, build a resume, and view the schedule of college representatives visiting the high school and much more.

  • Partnering With Peer Ministry

    • In partnership with Peer Ministry, College Counselors visit our Freshmen Theology classes to talk about the transition into high school and the importance of being kind to each other.  Senior students share their experiences and provide direction, advice, and support to our underclassmen.

    • A wonderful way to find a college that might otherwise be ignored or undiscovered. College Counselors offer students the opportunity to attend a presentation from a College Admissions Officer.
