Totino-GraceA Catholic High School in the Lasallian Tradition
Our college and career planning program seeks to help students identify career interests and then apply to colleges that are good matches with regard to their aspirations, achievements, learning style and needs. Our Director of College & Career Planning oversees our overall college planning and standardized test programs, but all counselors work with students in the post high school planning process. We encourage parents and students to visit the various pages and links provided on our site to to see more post high planning and standardized testing information.
Each spring and summer, colleges/universities and other organizations offer opportunities for Juniors (and, in some cases, Sophomores) to explore schools and gain valuable academic experiences. Totino-Grace will post information on these activities as our School Counseling Office becomes aware of events. Please check back here frequently for updates.
