Our Mission Is Essential

COVID-19 has presented a tremendous challenge for Saint Ignatius High School to balance our mission of providing an academically rigorous, Catholic, Jesuit education along with the health and safety recommendations of leading healthcare experts. Due to a rise in the number of positive cases, we are pivoting to virtual learning beginning Monday, November 16.

College Counseling

Our College Counselors help prepare seniors and second semester juniors for their college careers. They guide students through the college application and selection process using Jesuit discernment, and assist in applying for scholarships.

The College Counselors at Saint Ignatius work closely with each and every student and his parents/guardians throughout the college admission process, beginning in the first semester of junior year and throughout senior year. Couselors assist with college research, applications, essays, major and career exploration, as well as financial aid and scholarships. Just as every young man is an individual, we tailor our process to help each student decide where he will be academically challenged, comfortable and successful, but most importantly, what God is calling him to do.

Some of our programming includes:

  • More than 100 college admissions representatives visit our campus for group information sessions throughout the school year
  • Individual college interviews held on our campus
  • Periodic student trips to college campuses
  • An individual Naviance account for each student, which can be used to research colleges and majors, as well as viewing scattergrams that track Saint Ignatius student admission results
  • Financial Aid Night, as well as individual appointments with a financial aid advisor
  • Lunchtime Career Speaker Series
  • Jesuit College Fair
  • Day of Discernment, with 14-16 alumni reflecting on their path to college and careers to our seniors
  • College Readiness Day, with alumni presenting and advising on serious issues students may face in college
