Guidance & College Planning

Building relationships while creating a vision for the future!

The Gross Catholic Guidance Department is dedicated to promoting, supporting, and enhancing the personal and academic development of each student by fostering relationships with students, parents, teachers, administrators and the wider community. Through a structured, comprehensive program, the Guidance Department provides students with academic, college/career and personal/social counseling.


Gross Catholic is committed to fostering and supporting the academic growth of all students throughout their four years of high school. The Guidance Department works diligently with students, parents, teachers, and administrators to promote academic success for all students through educational planning, course selection, testing, and academic monitoring.

College Planning

Gross Catholic provides excellent preparation for college. We know college planning begins freshman year, and we work to ensure our students are on track for their future. Gross Catholic’s size allows the opportunity to accommodate and challenge each student individually, from our highest achievers to those students who require extra help.

Personal/Social Counseling

Gross Catholic’s Guidance Department strives to help students with any personal/social concerns they experience. The counselors are more than willing to meet with students and families and offer community referrals. In addition, Gross Catholic partners with Catholic Charities to offer individual counseling. A therapist from Catholic Charities is available to meet privately with students one day a week. These sessions are typically 30 minutes and are a free service to our school families. Please contact the counselors in the guidance office if you are interested in these additional services.
