St. Ursula Academy provides a comprehensive college counseling program. We assist our students in identifying their God-given talents, strengths and needs, and assist them in selecting a college or university that is most holistically appropriate for them. We believe that the best “fit” encompasses academic, spiritual, social and emotional components.

In the junior year, each student and her parents meet with her counselor for a college planning session. This in-depth, personalized meeting lasts approximately two hours and covers the following topics: St. Ursula Academy transcript, standardized testing strategy, letters of recommendation, college essay, resume, prospective college lists, and much more. A student's course requests for her senior year schedule will also be discussed in this meeting. In the fall of the senior year, follow up status check meeting will be held with each student.
Naviance is a comprehensive website that all students use to explore interests, identify strengths, and help in making plans about careers and colleges. Naviance also provides resources and individual tools to assist students with the transitions of high school.
Some of what Naviance provides:
