College Counseling


The mission of Our Lady of Mercy's College Counseling Department is to provide a proactive, comprehensive, and developmentally appropriate program to address students' academic and career goals. This is accomplished through a partnership with parents/guardians, staff, and community members to enable all students to become successful, productive citizens and lifelong learners in a diverse and changing world.  

The College Admissions philosophy is to focus on process—the process of evaluating options, of reflecting on the past, and of submitting applications.  There is no shortcut to being admitted to college, and no way to achieve the desired outcome without some time, effort, patience, and thought.
