Cardinal Ritter College Prep Guidance Office

 

The CRCP Guidance Department, Counseling Corner, is designed to anticipate many of the questions you will have concerning admission to college, careers and classes. When consulted faithfully, you will find the process of applying to college, taking the right courses and plotting a career path much easier. The following links contain information and suggestions on:

 

• Creating an appropriate list of colleges to consider
• Comparing the colleges
• Preparing for campus visits and interviews
• Preparing for required standardized tests
• Preparing college applications
• Securing scholarships and financial aid
• And more.

 

To all of the information contained herein, we ask to both parents and students: take responsibility, be organized, ask questions and be proactive and constructive in planning your future. The preparation for college actually begins upon entering Cardinal Ritter College Preparatory High School as a ninth grader. Each student entering Cardinal Ritter has a four year plan designed specifically to assist in mapping out their educational journey. The curriculum in place at Ritter prepares students for academic excellence at the collegiate level. The members of faculty assist the student at each stage to ensure their success. College counseling for each student and his/her family is primary the responsibility of the Guidance Department.
