Every student is known and loved. These St. John’s School core values are also guiding principles for the Counseling Counseling program. Our balanced approach to college admissions focuses on helping students find colleges that fit their interests, values, and needs while also prioritizing their well-being.
College Counseling is intentional about our approach, practices, progressive language, and conversations with students and their families around the topics of diversity, equity, inclusion, and anti-racism. We actively support the SJS affinity groups and collaborate with the academic departments to develop programming that affirms each students’ individual identities. Our purpose is to create a safe space for students to feel empowered to lead the college search and application process. Our ambition is that our students will leave St. John’s and reflect on the difficult, but necessary, conversations they had around our tables and make a conscious effort to make a positive impact in their college communities and beyond.
