It is the mission of the Counseling Office to assist each student in becoming morally grounded, academically competent, civically responsible, mentally and physically balanced, and personally and socially well-developed. This is achieved through a collaborative approach with school community members and programming that is developmentally appropriate and addresses students' unique academic, personal, social, and college/career readiness needs. The school counselors are available to assist students with college and career exploration and readiness throughout their time at Mount de Sales Academy. In the spring of freshman year, students are introduced to Naviance, a tool for personal exploration and the college search. As juniors, students begin preparing for the college application process with the college counselor, which leads to a more individualized approach in senior year.
The Counseling Department is comprised of a blue & yellow class counselor, red & green class counselor, and college counselor. Counselors work with all students individually, in small groups, and in the classroom to support them in their academic, personal, social, emotional, career, and college growth during all four years at Mount de Sales Academy. Parents and Guardians are also welcome to meet with the counselors to support their daughter when needed.
