As a college preparatory high school, St. Mary’s provides extensive assistance to students on the college admissions process. Beginning in freshman year, students are encouraged to focus on their preparation for college exams such as the SAT and ACT. Both sophomores and juniors take the PSAT and Pre-ACT to identify areas in need of improvement. Junior and senior year students focus on the college search and application process. Students are encouraged to use the Naviance Program, an internet-based program designed for college searches, career searches as well as an interest inventory to identify areas of career interest. In the spring of junior year, the counselors set up individual meetings with juniors and parents/guardians to discuss the entire college process.
