Welcome from the Saint Thomas Academy College Counseling Center!  Our mission is to help students realize his college bound potential and support him in making good decisions for the next stage in his academic career.  It is our belief that students, parents and the College Counselors will work together and communicate clearly regarding all aspects of the college search process.

While students must remain the driving force in the college search and selection process, the College Counseling Center will provide the resources and guidance to help students and parents navigate through this exciting and important time in life. The Saint Thomas Academy College Counselors will advise and educate students and families on the intricacies of the college search and decision making process. We are liaisons and advocates, dedicated to informing colleges and universities of the quality of Saint Thomas Academy's college preparatory education.

Our collective goal is to personalize the college application experience by matching a student to a range of schools on all levels – academic, co-curricular and social. We ask that students are engaged in the college search process, self reflect and communicate with us often. We have consulted many resources and have used our years of expertise to provide what we hope is a helpful, informative, practical and convenient resource for STA students and families.  As you come to know our office, you will see that we work as a team to serve students and families.  And most of all, we look forward to getting you know you better!
