College Counseling

The college counseling program at Sacred Heart is a comprehensive process that begins in the ninth grade. Our mission is rooted in our belief that each student is unique and that the college process is an opportunity for growth and self-reflection. Our student-centered approach helps our students discover what type of learners they are and what they want from life not only beyond Sacred Heart, but also after college.

Sacred Heart is very fortunate to have a low student to college counselor ratio, and the college counselors work closely with each student every step of the way to support and guide her. Weekly college counseling classes and formal one-on-one meetings begin in the eleventh grade and are supplemented with evening programs with college admission and financial aid counselors.

At the collegiate level, Sacred Heart students are sought out for being intellectually strong, passionate, responsible, and well-spoken leaders. More than 90 college representatives visit the school annually to provide both the students and counselors with an opportunity to learn more about specific institutions. In addition, Sacred Heart participates in the Manhattan Independent School Consortium College Fair each spring.
