We encourage each Holy Cross girl to pursue admission to a college that provides an appropriate match for her unique intellectual abilities, passions, talents, and personal values and we work with her to develop a list of schools. The AHC College Counselors are committed to guiding each girl and her family through a personalized college search.
The process formally begins in the spring of junior year with evening meetings for students and parents, an individual family meeting with the college counselor and small group sessions. The goal of the program is to help each girl find her right fit for life after the Academy.
Each year during the fall the Academy welcomes approximately 150 colleges to campus. These visits help our girls explore the various opportunities and gather firsthand information from admission officers. College Counselors also use these opportunities to strengthen professional relationships and to further educate them about the Academy's strengths and academic offerings. It is through these visits that the counselors seek to promote Holy Cross girls in their college search.
