Guidance and College Counseling
The Guidance and Counseling Staff at Cardinal Newman High School is involved a cooperative effort among students, staff members, parents and the community. Our purpose is to empower all learners to lead satisfying and productive lives by assisting them in identifying and achieving educational, and career goals. We are here to help educate the mind, body and spirit by working with academic issues, educational and career planning, as well as personal concerns. All students meet several times each year with their counselor in class settings. Counselors will also meet individually with students at least twice a year.
