COUNSELING DEPARTMENT

The Counseling Department at Bishop McDevitt works collaboratively with students, parents, faculty, and community members to enhance the learning and futures of our students.  While one is assigned to each student, they are multiple counselors available for students to consult with regarding academic, social, or career questions and concerns.  During 9th grade, students are encouraged to sign up for group sessions that best fit their interest while also having the option to make individual appointments.  Freshmen spend time learning how to navigate through Naviance, a college and career readiness tool that will be crucial as an upperclassman when students are applying to colleges and determining what careers may be a good fit for them.  Grades 10th through 12th spend a great deal of time focusing on the goals, both academic and personal, that students have.  Students will meet with counselors to complete interviews that allow for individual planning for their future. 

 

Many assessments throughout the academic year are coordinated through the Counseling Department as well.  The SAT, PSAT, ASVAB, ACT, and AP exams are all scheduled and presented to students at particular times within the year.  Sophomores each year take the ASVAB (Armed Service Vocational Aptitude Battery) that allows them to explore their strengths and the careers that align with them, while there is no obligation to the military. The PSAT is commonly referred to as a practice SAT test and is taken by juniors in October.  Juniors and Seniors are both advised to take the SAT and or ACT when they are prepared. The Counseling Department sponsors multiple school-wide events, including a Catholic Colleges Fair and Financial Aid Night.
