A Plan of Action for Lifelong Success.

The choices your student makes for 9th grade and throughout the duration of high school will affect the rest of their life. St. Joseph Academy is a strong believer in the words of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry – ‘A goal without a plan is just a wish.’

A clearly defined path and action plan is integral for student success. Our student counselors work with families to create individualized, tailored plans based on specific needs, abilities and goals of each student. These action plans help students realize their academic and personal achievements and also enables our counselors and parents to institute accountability when needed.

The fact that our students are chosen by the nation’s leading universities and lead successful personal and professional lives isn’t a coincidence … it’s planned.

Navigating the often stressful and increasingly complex college admission process can be challenging. Our guidance counselors are readily accessible to help guide students and their families. Collaboration is key and we encourage ongoing individual, parent-teacher and parent-counselor discussions.

The roles of our counselors also go beyond academics and include assisting students who are experiencing emotional or social challenges. As trained mental health professionals, they strive to build safe, positive and trusting relationships with every student. Whether its mental-health concerns, student-related problems or family crises, extra support is always available.
