School Counseling

The School Counseling Department at La Salle Institute provides services to help each student more easily reach his educational goals. Its purpose is to assist each student and to get each student ready for college. 

This is achieved by providing students the right counsel at the right time in their educational path.

These offers of admission accompanied by 244 scholarship awards totaling $12.8M.

Students in La Salle’s middle school program (grades 6 through 8) receive counseling throughout the year. In addition to orientation of new students and monitoring growth through early adolescence, much work is done to help the students develop strong study skills with a view of preparation for high school. 

Once students enter the high school program (grades 9 and 10), special emphasis is placed on study and career skills, as well as continued monitoring of students’ growth. Counseling and interviews are available, as well as orientation for new students and transfers.

Students in grades 11 and 12 will find the School Counseling program heavily focused on college placement. This includes dissemination of information and preparation for PSAT and SAT exams, college fairs, college interviews, college visits, diagnostic testing, letters of recommendation for college, scholarships, counseling and interviews throughout the year. 

The School Counseling Department is designed so that, whether you are a parent or a student, you never have to worry about college preparedness. Setting students up for success in college is built into La Salle’s curriculum to ensure students never miss a deadline or an important step. 

La Salle's College Entrance Examination Board (CEEB) Code is 335-615.
