College Counseling

Where college prep means college ready

At Cardinal Gibbons, we provide one-on-one college counseling and academic support to every student. This process helps them build confidence, explore college options that best fit their interests and expectations, and make clear, well-informed decisions.

College acceptance rate

We’re proud of our annual 100% college acceptance rate, but we’re more excited about our students finding a college where they feel at home.

Through our college counseling services, students explore their college options, navigate conversations with parents, educators, and admissions committees, and shine a spotlight on their individual talents and skills.
