Ursuline Academy's Guidance Counselors help students examine their interests and abilities and chart a path toward personal and intellectual fulfillment. The goal of the Guidance Department is to provide students with knowledge of adolescent growth and development, to promote positive mental health and to assist them to acquire and use life skills.
Counselors meet with all students in grades 7 through 12 throughout the academic year. The progress of each student is monitored closely in order to understand personal needs, interests and goals.
Counselors assist with all aspects of the college admissions process. During the junior and senior year, each student is provided with personal counseling and assistance in her college search and selection process. The Guidance Department hosts one fall College Fair featuring representatives from over 70 colleges and also brings juniors to the Spring College Fair at Xaverian Brothers High School. Individual college representatives visit campus to meet with seniors in the fall and a College Information Evening and Financial Aid Workshop is offered for students and parents. Juniors also have the opportunity to participate in a College Application Workshop in June.
Traditionally 100% of Ursuline seniors are accepted at four year colleges and universities.
Naviance Note: Students in grades 9-12 should be registered on Naviance using their own email and password. Parents are encouraged to review the resources available in Naviance as well. Seniors are required to use Naviance for the college application process. We remind seniors to check the scholarship tab on Naviance, as it lists scholarship opportunities that come into the Guidance office.
Know Your Counselor!
Every student is assigned a Guidance Counselor. Starting in grade 7, students are assigned a counselor based on an alphabetical split and keep the same counselor for the duration of their time at Ursuline. If you need assistance from the Guidance Department, please contact your daughter's assigned counselor, or call 781-493-7724.
