The counselors at Bishop England start discussing college planning as early as the 9th grade. Students are shown how to use Naviance in their search for a good college “fit”. The junior and senior counselors will meet with students and their families each year to make sure students are meeting application deadlines, making transcript requests, and applying for financial aid. Some of the ways our counselors go the extra mile is by offering a summer college “boot camp” for rising seniors, hosting a Financial Aid Night, inviting college representatives to our campus to meet with interested students, taking students on college tours, and hosting college fairs and offering a Case Study Night.
Through involvement in the National Association for College Admissions, the Southern Association for College Admissions, the American School Counseling Association, and the National Catholic Association, our counseling department stays informed about the ever changing scene in college admissions.
