The Guidance Office is responsible for standardized testing, scheduling, registration, and report cards. Guidance is also responsible for transcripts, student records, work permits, scholarship information, college deadlines, and teacher tutoring times. Guidance Office personnel plan Senior and Junior Conferences, one-on-one meetings with each student about college preparedness. The Guidance Office also coordinates award ceremonies, career planning, and some college visits.
Senior Conferences begin in September, as soon as the school year is in full swing. Counselors and students discuss college applications, scholarship opportunities, financial aid, and each student’s diploma progress.
The Guidance Office also publishes monthly bulletins that compile all the important information seniors need to know.
Junior Conferences begin in October, typically following Senior Conferences. Counselors and students discuss college entrance tests, college visits, diploma progress, and general preparedness.
Career Day is a bi-annual event put on by the Guidance Office. Individuals of all different professions are scheduled to speak in Cardinal Ritter classrooms throughout the day. Students fill out a survey prior to Career Day and may attend four different sessions. If you are interested in being a Career Day speaker or would like more information, contact Lindsay Thomas.
Parchment is the platform used to easily submit transcripts to colleges during the application process.
