Welcome to the Oakland Catholic College Counseling Center!
It is our goal to provide a supportive and knowledgeable college preparatory environment for our students. The College Counseling Center strives to implement college preparation strategies by educating students and parents through events and workshops. We also value opportunities to interact and build relationships with colleges.
The college search and application process is a personal process. Therefore, in addition to programming, we strongly encourage that students and families schedule a one-on-one meeting with her college counselor. We aim to make sure each family is well-informed with accurate and current information. We also help families develop a clear idea of their post-secondary goals and how to best reach those goals.
Our hope is that through education, research and exposure, the college admission process will become more transparent to our students. Ultimately our goal is to provide an environment that will equip and educate each student to become an expert in her own admission process, as well as a confident and independent self-advocate who is well prepared for post-secondary education.
Oakland Catholic High School is a member of the Pennsylvania Association for College Admission Counseling and subscribes to the Statement of Principles of Good Practice and is a member of the National Association for College Admission Counseling.
Freshman year matters! Take advantage of this fresh start to establish a strong GPA.
- Course selection matters and can set you on a trajectory for excelling in Oakland Catholic's most advanced courses.
- Establish positive relationships with teachers, coaches, and administration. These relationships provide the foundation for strong recommendation letters and teach students self-advocacy skills.
- Activities and involvement: choose activities, maintain involvement, and look for leadership and service opportunities. Discover passions and interests.
- Individual meetings with a college counselor are not necessary during freshman year. If there is particular concern or interest, the Director of College Counseling will partner with the student’s school counselor, administration, and teachers to ensure that appropriate classes and curriculum are selected for the student depending on her interest and college goals.
- If your GPA suffered during freshman year, an upward trend in grades can be redemptive. Keep working hard, either at maintaining a strong GPA or at improving your freshman year GPA. The sooner you correct your course, the easier it is to boost your GPA and overall grade trend.
- Stay on track with course selection to meet and exceed college requirements for a specific major.
- Continue establishing positive relationships with teachers, coaches, and administration.
- Activities and involvement: sustain involvement in activities, explore new activities, pursue leadership opportunities and opportunities to serve your community. Continue to discover passions and interests and seek out chances to dive deeper into your passions.
- Self-exploration: sophomores are encouraged to think about their strengths. Which classes are the most engaging? Why? What do friends, teachers, and family members say about your strengths? How could these strengths lead to a potential course of study or occupation?
- Career exploration: School counseling will conduct career assessments with sophomores.
- Consider a summer pre-college program or other enrichment program at a university as a rising junior and/or senior.
- Individual meetings are not necessary during sophomore year. If there is particular concern, the Director of College Counseling will partner with the student’s school counselor, administration, and teachers to ensure that appropriate classes are selected for the student depending on her interest and college goals.

We advise every student to take one SAT and one ACT in the fall or winter of their junior year to determine which test is best for her. These can be official exams or free, proctored practice exams. (There are multiple benefits of taking a practice exam: it is free of cost, it gives a student a baseline score without having a record of taking the test, and it helps reduce test anxiety by providing a simulation to test day. The environment and experience of a proctored practice exam will be very similar to the environment when taking the actual test.) Students usually test better on one exam over the other. Once a preferred exam is identified, the student should pursue test prep for that particular exam. It is discouraged to continue to take both the SAT and the ACT repeatedly. By the time students conclude their junior year, they should have taken at least two SAT or two ACT exams, and they should plan to be done testing before senior year begins.
Oakland Catholic’s official test prep partner is Goldstein Test Prep. Families are encouraged to explore Goldstein’s course offerings and tutoring programs when looking for test prep options.
If you are an international student, you may be required to take the TOEFL exam (or another English proficiency exam) as well. Please check the website of the colleges where you are applying. Sometimes this requirement is waived depending on SAT and ACT scores.

In 2022, Oakland Catholic established a formal partnership with Goldstein Test Prep, a top, local SAT/ACT test preparation program. Since 2007, Goldstein Test Prep has distinguished itself as one of the premier test preparation programs in our area, working with over 700 students a year, counseling families through the testing process, and helping their students achieve sizable gains.
Goldstein Test Prep runs SAT and ACT courses at Oakland Catholic, welcomes Oakland Catholic students to attend courses at other locations in the area, and hosts informational sessions about standardized testing for Oakland Catholic families. Please find additional details of our partnership below, as well as information about Goldstein Test Prep.
On-site Courses – Goldstein Test Prep will conveniently provide SAT and ACT programs at Oakland Catholic, and OC students will be welcome to attend courses at other locations such as Winchester-Thurston, Shady Side Academy, and the Pine-Richland Youth Center.
Unlimited Practice Tests – Each program includes the opportunity for students to take an unlimited number of practice tests, which will run on Saturdays from 11AM – 2:30PM.
Ongoing Support and Free Reviews – After completing a group course, students are welcome to sit in on future courses of the same type to review at no additional charge.
Consultations and Guidance – All Goldstein Test Prep families receive a free consultation regarding testing dates to target and ongoing support.
Small Class Sizes – Courses will be capped in order to keep class sizes small. If more than 13 students register for a particular course, it will be split into multiple sections with multiple instructors, and both sections will run at the same time.
Financial Aid –Families who receive financial aid to attend Oakland Catholic will be eligible for scholarships to attend Goldstein Test Prep courses.
Accolades – Goldstein Test Prep was recently selected by CBS Local as one of the top SAT/ACT preparation programs in the region.
Options – Goldstein Test Prep offers group courses, private tutoring, and combination programs for both the SAT and the ACT. Every family receives a free consultation and ongoing support to determine which tests might be best for students to pursue. They also work with families to determine the appropriate number of hours students need to meet their goals. While small enough to have individual relationships with their families, Goldstein Test Prep offers flexible options in order to find the right program and price point for each family.
Elite Teachers and Mentorship – All teachers have scored in the 99th percentile of test-takers and have attended an Ivy League or equivalent undergraduate program. Goldstein Test Prep instructors are young, ambitious, and talented. Full-time tutors each have at least five years of experience teaching SAT and ACT preparation. Also, having recently and successfully traversed the college admissions process, instructors are in a unique position to serve as mentors to their students.
The Right Approach – Students learn how each question type is designed to test them on a very narrow set of skills, specifically step-by-step thinking processes. By pulling back the curtain on the SAT and ACT, Goldstein Test Prep seeks to empower students. They also review every concept that students will encounter on each test. Students develop a clear system for each section and know exactly what to expect on test day.
Superscoring is when a college accepts the best section score of each SAT or ACT. With the SAT, most colleges will consider the best Evidenced-Based Reading and Writing score along with the best Math score to derive the highest possible total score. Some schools will superscore the ACT, taking the highest Math, English, Reading, Science, and Composite score. Superscoring policies vary from school to school, so it is important to read how they superscore.
Students are responsible for sending their scores to colleges through the College Board website or the ACT website. It can take up to 4 weeks scores to be received by the college once sent through College Board or ACT, so please plan accordingly. Oakland Catholic does not print test scores on student transcripts, and we are not responsible for sending test scores to institutions on behalf of a student. Some colleges accept self-reported test scores from students, to be followed up with official scores if a student decides to enroll.
If a student is applying Early Action or Early Decision to a school, it is important that she looks at her colleges’ deadlines and testing policies. Some colleges only accept scores taken up to a certain date (i.e. September or October of the application year). Please be aware of testing restrictions. Colleges do not penalize students for re-taking an exam and scoring lower; most schools only consider a student’s best scores.
Increasing numbers of colleges are switching to a test-optional policy meaning that Students can apply without submitting test scores.
There are a few considerations when applying test-optional:
- Does the college require an additional essay, graded paper, or supplement to be submitted in lieu of the test scores?
- Does the college have a GPA minimum to apply test-optional? If a student decides to apply test-optional, she should be aware that more emphasis will be placed on the transcript. If a student has any holes in her transcript, test scores should be sent.
- Additionally, if a student’s test scores are within or above the published median 50% test score range for a particular college, she should send her scores to the college. The published test score ranges for test-optional colleges are often inflated, as the students who decide to send their scores tend to have higher scores. Test scores can help a student if she has had average to below-average high school performance.
In addition, some colleges operate under test-free admissions, meaning that they don’t review SAT or ACT scores for any applicants. Regardless of if your colleges offer test-optional, test-blind, or test-required admissions, we highly encourage each student to prepare for and take the SAT or ACT multiple times to earn her best score.
Please contact Mrs. Pavlick if you believe you qualify for an SAT or ACT fee waiver.
- You’re enrolled in or eligible to participate in the federal National School Lunch Program (NSLP).
- Your family's annual income falls within the Income Eligibility Guidelines set by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food and Nutrition Service.
- You're enrolled in a federal, state, or local program that aids students from low-income families, for example, TRIO programs like Upward Bound.
- Your family receives public assistance.
- You’re homeless or live in federally subsidized public housing or a foster home.
- You’re a ward of the state or an orphan.
- Be currently enrolled in high school in the 11th or 12th grade.
- Be testing in the United States, US territories, or Puerto Rico.
- Meet one or more of the indicators of economic need listed below:
- Enrolled in a federal free or reduced-price lunch program at school, based on US Department of Agriculture (USDA) income levels.
- Enrolled in a program for the economically disadvantaged (for example, a federally funded program such as GEAR UP or Upward Bound). Note: If the student participates in a program, but is not economically disadvantaged, they are not eligible for a fee waiver.
- Resides in a foster home, is a ward of the state, or is homeless.
- Family receives low-income public assistance or lives in federally subsidized public housing.
- Family’s total annual income is at or below USDA levels for free or reduced-price lunches on the USDA Food and Nutrition Service website.
A loan is money provided to the student that will need to be repaid after the she graduates from or leaves college. All students who submit the FAFSA are offered loans from the federal government through the Federal Direct Loan Program, regardless of financial need. Financial need does, however, determine the type of loans a student may receive. If a student has demonstrated financial need, a student might receive a portion of these loans in a subsidized loan, which is a loan that does not accrue interest while the student is enrolled in college. All students who apply through the FAFSA are offered an unsubsidized loan, which is a loan that does accrue interest.
A grant is free money that does not need to be repaid. Grants are need-based, and can be offered by the federal government, the state government, and by individual colleges.
A scholarship is free money that does not need to be repaid. Scholarships are often based on merit, not need. Some scholarships are "renewable," meaning that they may are offered each year the student attends college while others are a one-time award. It is a good idea to make sure you know whether a scholarship is renewable or not. Some colleges automatically consider you for their scholarships based on your college application, while others require you to submit a separate scholarship application.
There are also many scholarships that are offered through community organizations or national websites such as fastweb.com. It is recommended that students apply for many scholarships, especially those offered by local organizations. Oakland Catholic maintains a list of scholarship opportunities for students to browse local opportunities. This document is made available to students in their senior year. Scholarships should cost you nothing to apply and may require an essay and transcript submission. (Beware of scholarships or scholarship search sites that make you pay in order to apply.)
- When can I apply for financial aid?
- What is the FAFSA?
- What is the CSS Profile?
- If I am only interested in applying for scholarships, do I have to submit the FAFSA and CSS Profile?
- What if I don't want to take out any student loans?
The FAFSA is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. The FAFSA is FREE and can be found here: https://studentaid.gov. The FAFSA generates an EFC, or Expected Family Contribution, which is the amount of money the federal government determines that a particular household can contribute to the student's post-secondary education per year. The student's EFC determines her eligibility for need-based financial aid from the federal government, state government, and individual institutions. This amount changes each year based on financial fluctuations that may occur in the family, and therefore a family needs to submit the FAFSA every year the student is enrolled in college.
The CSS Profile is the College Scholarship Search Profile, developed by the College Board. Some private colleges require the CSS Profile in addition to the FAFSA. The CSS Profile can be found here: https://cssprofile.collegeboard.org. The CSS profile asks for similar information as the FAFSA, but also does a deeper dive into a family's financial situation.
