St. Joseph High School considers guidance and counseling a key component of the total STJ educational program. The STJ Guidance Office goals are centered around transparency, collaboration, age-appropriate conversations surrounding the college application/future endeavors process, and planning. We work with seniors as they work through the admissions process, college-plan with juniors through one-on-one junior conferences, and provide guidance in course selections for underclassmen in preparation for their future goals.  

Beyond guidance for the future, the STJ Guidance Office will provide:

  • Crisis Counseling and referrals as needed
  • PSAT 8/9, PSAT NMSQT, SAT, ACT, and TSIA2 explanation and guidance
  • Assistance with the dual credit process
  • Students with disability service (accommodations for classroom, SAT, ACT, and dual credit)
  • Guidance for the STJ Christian Service program

STJ employs a full time college admission counselor, a registrar, and part-time academic advisor.
