Embracing faith, family and education

College Counseling

Nazareth Academy High School graduates are admitted to a wide range of academic institutions, from Ivy League to Liberal Arts-focused, and always best suited to her strengths, aspirations, and goals for the future.

Nazareth Academy High School's College Counseling program supports students as they develop the knowledge and awareness to determine the educational path that is best for their education and their future.  College and School Counselors work closely together regarding each student's course selection and activities, with an eye towards the college process.  Applying to colleges can at times be an overwhelming task, but with the help of our counselors our girls choose the school that is the best fit for their specific interests  and talents. 

The Office of College Counseling provides clarity and support and educates students and families on the ever-changing world of college admissions. The key to a successful college search experience is good communication between the student, the parents, college counselors, and the colleges.
