Welcome to the
Counseling Center

The members of the St. Mary's Counseling Center work closely with students throughout their four years to help them with selecting courses, career planning, the college search and application process, and scholarships and financial aid.

Counselors will be working with students to:

  • Assess strengths and weaknesses
  • Develop good decision-making skills, positive attitudes, and good study habits
  • Solve personal problems with family, friends, or teachers
  • Plan high school and post-high school education


The Counseling Center coordinates the following events to assist students in their college search process:

  • College Representative Visits (one-on-one visits) - throughout the Fall and Spring
  • College Consortium (area colleges send representatives whom student may visit) - Every October
  • Bus to Bona (trip to St. Bonaventure University) - Every October
  • College 101 (recent graduates share their college experience) - January 2023
  • Career Fair (representatives from different careers come to St. Mary's) - Spring 2023
  • National College Fair (Juniors go to Convention Center to meet with college representatives) - March 2023
  • College Tour (student and counselors visit out-of-town colleges) - Spring of 2023
