College Guidance

St. Agnes offers a challenging, college-prepartory course of studies for all its students. Over 95% of the graduates in the past 5 years enrolled in college. The guidance department assists students and parents with college applications.

Sophomores College guidance begins in sophomore year when students take the practice college admission test or PSAT. Colleges do not review PSAT scores, but the PSAT helps students discover their strengths and weaknesses before taking the SAT.

Juniors Students take the PSAT again at the beginning of junior year. Juniors meet with the college counselor in the spring term to explore the application process. The Junior Parent College Night helps parents understand the admission and financial aid processes. The students then take the SAT for the first time in either May or June.

Seniors Seniors continue to meet with the college counselor. Students are encouraged to select a manageable number of colleges to explore in depth. The SAT exam is administered in October, November, December, and January with the goal for the students to take its at least twice but usually no more than three times. Senior parents are invited to attend evening meetings on the application process in September and on financial aid in December.
