Guidance & College Planning
The DeLaSalle Guidance and Counseling Office is dedicated to helping all students reach their academic, intellectual, social, and personal potential by providing guidance, educational support, and resources in:
- Post-high school planning
- Current academic studies
- Social and emotional development
The Guidance Office is located on the first floor of the B Building, across from the Florance Center.
Students and parents are welcome to drop in to use the office computers for college research, to obtain booklets and pamphlets on personal growth, to meet one-on-one with a counselor, or help themselves to the many resources available.
With 96% of DeLaSalle students continuing their education, the Guidance staff is very involved in assisting students with their post-secondary plans. The planning process is a collaborative effort with the student, parents and the school. The college counselors work with juniors and seniors in a variety of ways:
- Assist in identifying post-secondary options
- Assist with essays and personal statements
- Write letters of recommendation
- Process and review applications before mailing them to colleges
- Mail mid-year and final grades to colleges
The guidance counselors assist and support students in achieving academic success. Our counselors help students develop academic goals, assist with course schedules and intervene with any barriers that may be interfering with academic success.
Counselors are available to meet with students about personal issues before school, during the student's free period or after school. Students should not miss class to meet with a counselor, unless there is an emergency and must have a pass from the teacher of the class they will miss.
