College & School Counseling
The 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 also 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.

Partnering with Peer Ministry
In 2019, the Counseling Office started a new initiative with Peer Ministry. Counselors go into Freshmen Theology classes with peer ministers to talk about the transition into high school and the importance of being kind to each other. Seniors share their experiences and provide direction, advice, and support to our underclassmen.
