Marian counselors offer comprehensive support—academic, college, career, and personal counseling—to all students.

Our state and nationally certified and licensed counselors meet regularly with students, both individually and in groups, ensuring that they receive the guidance and support they need throughout their high school journey.

Students Smile and Hug in Hallway

Marian Counseling focuses on guiding students to a college or university that complements their interests, aspirations, abilities, and personal sense of community. We educate, counsel, guide, support, and advocate for students throughout their college search.

College Counseling Timeline

We believe that each student's path is unique, and we're here to guide you to a college or university that complements your interests, aspirations, and abilities. Our counselors support you in your personal exploration of goals, strengths, and values. This journey begins in your first year and continues throughout your time at Marian. As college counselors, we listen, ask probing questions, and get to know you so that we can provide you unique guidance on your journey towards college.
