The College Counseling Office consists of two full-time college counselors and one full time Administrative Assistant dedicated to assisting students and parents with the college selection and admissions process. Each counselor has a caseload of juniors and seniors whom they advise for college selection and admission.
Each student is issued a Naviance account, during their sophomore year, in order to access their personal college page. Naviance is our electronic college admissions program which organizes potential schools and tracks student application materials. Students also use Naviance to sign up for in-house college information sessions during the school day. Over 150 college representatives visit Archbishop Spalding each Fall.
The College Counseling Office offers workshops over the summer and during the school year covering a range of topics, including writing the college essay and help with application completion. Students are encouraged to attend to the College Fair held every fall, as it is a great opportunity to meet and connect with admissions representatives from a large number of schools. The College Counseling Office also hosts a separate College Night for sophomore, junior and senior students and parents. Families are asked to attend, as a wealth of information about the process of searching, selecting and applying to college is covered.
