College Counseling

At Saint George we believe that high school years are a time of transition and growth for adolescents, as they develop and change cognitively, physically and socially.

We offer the services of a college counselor to give our students the opportunity to explore all options for education after graduation, assisting them through the entire college admission process while at the same time aiming to match each student’s abilities, strengths, personal preferences and career aspirations to the best possible institution.

Communication, responsibility and accessibility are very important to us. Our counseling program is designed to promote and enhance the learning process of our students. Therefore, we want to work as a team with parents and students allowing for a smooth transition between secondary and post secondary education.  The decision of choosing a college is one of the most important ones a student will make so our doors are always open for advice and counseling.
