The college search and application process can be daunting, but our experienced Counseling team is here to provide each student and her family the support and resources they need. Comprised of five counselors who are all trained in college planning, our department coordinates PSAT and Pre-ACT test administration, on-site college fairs, and offers a summer college application workshop.
Throughout the school year, we offer classroom seminars to students, as well as evening and after-school seminars for parents/guardians on topics such as the college application process, financial aid, SAT/ACT, and more.
In middle school, students are introduced to Naviance, a college and career planning software that serves as a vital resource in the college search and application process as well as career exploration. Naviance allows students to learn about their strengths and reflect on their interests and apply their self-discovery to their college and career paths. At each grade level, counselors and students work together to explore and use the different features of Naviance.
At Mercy, we value a student’s experience outside of the classroom as well as her academics. We encourage each Mercy Girl to seek opportunities that will enrich her education, expand her horizons, and guide her toward finding her passion in life. The links below are available to students who are looking for opportunities to explore college and career path options during and after high school.
