College Placement

As part of its services, the Guidance Department provides a full range of college and career placement services.

During the junior and senior year, the department conducts several programs for students and their parents in order to assist them in selecting an appropriate college career. In addition to these programs, the College Placement Office maintains an extensive library of material on scholarships, college choices, financial aid information, and other data pertinent to the selection of a college.

In September, the Guidance Department holds a college information session for seniors and their parents, whereupon counselors explain the application process and other aspects of college entry. In October, parents may attend a workshop on the nuances of applying for financial aid and how to complete related paperwork and profiles.

In October of their junior year, students and their parents are required to attend a session that introduces the college process. Students are registered for Naviance – an Internet college and career readiness program. This program is used as a tool by the Guidance Department in assisting students with the college admissions process.

The College Placement Office maintains liason with the Directors of Admission at various colleges, universities, and United States service academies. The Office sponsors a program for every major school to which our students apply. These programs offer the student an opportunity to meet with the admissions officer from the various schools.

In conjunction with the Chaminade Alumni Association, the Guidance Department sponsors a Career Night. The program offers presentations and discussions in more than 35 careers for members of the junior class. In May, students in the junior class and their parents attend a college fair with representatives from a host of institutions.
