During a student's time at Marin Catholic, counselors introduce the concept of college and career pathways, assess and counsel students about their interests, and help students make connections between their current academic progress and future college plans. Counselors help students understand the relationship between consistent efforts in school and success in college. Counselors provide guidance to juniors and seniors as they engage in the college search, selection, and application process. Junior and Senior families are encouraged to attend the department’s educational events related to the college search and application process.
Family Connection (web-based resource powered by, and sometimes also called, Naviance) is a "one-stop shop" that contains many of the guidance and college counseling tools students will utilize throughout the college search/application during their tenure at Marin Catholic.
Junior and senior students receive systematic college counseling. Parents are encouraged to consult with their student's counselor during the college search, selection, and application process. Parents of sophomores, juniors, and seniors are encouraged to attend college and financial aid information nights sponsored by the Department.
