Helping you achieve your dreams

Eastside Catholic School understands the college process can be overwhelming. College counseling is a personalized service available to students throughout high school.
The mission of Eastside Catholic’s high school college counseling process is to provide information and guidance to students and their parents, and to assist them in making an informed decision regarding the selection of a college or university that best matches their unique talents and interests. Eastside Catholic has two college counselors devoted to supporting our students and their parents as they navigate the college search and selection process.

College support services are available to freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors. In the fall, priority is placed on meeting with seniors to ensure they are well prepared and have assistance throughout the college application process. College advising at Eastside Catholic aims to make the college exploration and application process less overwhelming for students and families by providing them with the most up-to-date information and resources available and equip them with the tools necessary to make informed decisions about post-secondary education. College support services include, but are not limited to:
Individual Meetings Mandatory meetings with all juniors and seniors; meetings conducted with freshmen and sophomores when requested by student or parents/guardians
Grade-Level Meetings College Information Sessions are held in the evenings throughout the year for each grade level (9 – 12)
