College Counseling

Welcome to College Counseling

We partner with Cardinal Gibbons students on their journey through high school to college by encouraging self-reflection, identifying their God-given gifts, promoting academic and personal growth to foster independence as they transition to adulthood. As counselors we invite parents to participate in this process by walking alongside us to offer guidance and instill confidence in their student to help them become successful young adults.
