The Holy Names High School Counseling Department is committed to providing assistance, support, and resources for each student and her parents, throughout the high school experience. The Counselors offers academic, personal, and college counseling to help ensure that each Holy Names student has the opportunity to identify and attain her unique academic, personal, spiritual, and intellectual potential, enabling her to achieve her goals while in high school, and setting a strong foundation for future success.
The Counseling Department is a great resource for our students throughout their four years at HNHS. They will be assigned a counselor during their freshman year with whom they will continue to consult until graduation. This arrangement has been very successful and allows a comforting “constant” mentor in the young women’s lives. Counselors meet with all students for formal appointments twice a year, once each semester. The counselors are also available for drop-in counseling and may request additional individual appointments. Parents are also encouraged to email or call their daughter’s Counselor with questions or concerns and attend evening workshops.
The counselors invite all students to visit the Counseling Office to become familiar with the resources available to students at all times such college resource handbooks, SAT or ACT testing information, college viewbooks, resource guides as well as information on college fairs, summer opportunities, volunteer opportunities and scholarships.
In addition to academic, personal, and college counseling, Counselors also provide classroom guidance curriculum.
