School counselors at Oakland Catholic High School encourage each student to realize her intellectual, spiritual, and social potential. We develop the skills needed for lifelong learners.
In collaboration with the administration, faculty, staff, students, parents, and stakeholders, our department supports the education and growth of our students through programs addressing academic needs, college guidance, career exploration, and personal and social development.
We provide a range of activities throughout the school year including classroom lessons, and group and individual counseling sessions. Counselors are available to meet with students at their request and encourage parents and guardians to communicate directly with their daughter’s counselor as needed. Explore all the ways we can address each student's unique needs below!
