Welcome to Archbishop Carroll High School’s Counseling Department. The mission of the Counseling Department flows directly from the mission of our school: a welcoming Catholic community intentional in the holistic formation of its students for a life of virtue, academic excellence, and service to the common good.  It is our hope that through service to their families and others, our students will become responsible citizens and leaders of tomorrow.

Carroll's counselors aim to help our students attain meaningful self-direction for their lives, develop an understanding and acceptance of themselves, attain optimum personal development through education, progress toward productive and rewarding careers, and develop satisfying relationships with others.

The Counseling Department utilizes Naviance Student, a comprehensive college and career readiness solution, designed to support and promote our students in planning for their futures.  Utilizing the online tools in Naviance Student will help our students set S.M.A.R.T. goals and build a professional resume, which may help in attaining jobs and assisting teachers in writing letters of recommendation.  These tools will also aid our students in identifying careers of interest based on personalized results from questionnaires and interest profilers, leading to thorough exploration of those careers via Naviance Student.  These tools will facilitate our students in searching for and comparing colleges and scholarships that align with their needs and interests.  Overall, Naviance Student will enhance our students' college and career preparedness and push them towards achieving their future goals.

  • coordinating and conducting classroom guidance
  • organizing student and parent informational presentations
  • facilitating small group meetings

  • assisting students in the scheduling process
  • tracking Carroll High School graduation progress
