High School Counseling
Lunchtime College Visits
Chaminade College Preparatory is fortunate to have ACTUAL admissions representatives visit our school during lunchtime. These are the same admissions represtatives who will be reading your applications and helping to make the admissions decisions for Chaminade students. Showing demonstrated interest in a college is taken into consideration in admissions decisions and meeting with these representatives at lunch shows interest! For an updated list of lunchtime college visits please click on the the link below to the Counseling Department Calendar. The list of college visits can also be found in Naviance, on the high school master calendar, and in Chaminade this Week.

The Counseling Department's goals and objectives are to provide needed services to all students and to utilize community resources in helping students solve problems, further their education, and make realistic plans for the future. This is done through individual and small group counseling. Each student should have a minimum of one counseling session during each semester, but counselors are available to students and parents as often as necessary.
