Student Role in College Admissions

St. Pius X counselors encourage students to challenge themselves on both an academic and an extracurricular level. We encourage students to take a four year view of finding and gaining entrance to the college of their choice. Students can help themselves now and in the future by:

  • Taking responsibility for grades and learning
  • Tackling challenging courses that foster growth
  • Developing time management skill to balance multiple interests
