College Corner


At St. Mary's Academy, the counselors work to implement a comprehensive guidance program that promotes the exploration of college and career goals. Students at St. Mary's are enrolled in courses that meet the CSU/UC requirements. Beginning in freshman year and every year after, students are exposed to a rigorous curriculum that prepares them for college.  The counselor's closely monitor students academic progress and work closely with each student and family through the college admission process.
