The Guidance Office is responsible for standardized testing, scheduling/registration, and report cards/progress reports. This office is also responsible for transcripts, student records, work permits, financial aid information and questions about scholarship information, college deadlines and teacher tutoring times. Guidance office personnel plan junior and senior conferences that are one-on-one meetings with each student, award ceremonies, career planning, and college representative visits. Below are just a few things that the Guidance Office has to offer.
DAVE MURRAY & ASSOCIATES/THE NATIONAL CENTER FOR COLLEGE COSTS
Cardinal Ritter High School continues to work to provide services, initiated through the Lumina Project, in preparation for the transition of students from secondary to post-secondary education. Parents and students attend workshops presented by Dave Murray and Associates/The National Center for College Costs. Workshop topics include persuasive college admission and scholarship essays, mock college admission case studies, college selection, College Survival 101, and college cost estimator. This program also includes college visitations during a student's junior year.
COLLEGE VISIT DAYS
If your student is interested in in visiting a college during a school day, they need to stop by the Guidance Office to pick up a College Visitation form. These forms need to be completed and signed by a parent one week prior to the actual visit. Seniors are allowed three college visit days and juniors are allowed two college visit days. On the following scheduled days, College representatives will visit Cardinal Ritter. Seniors are allowed 5 in-school visits, and juniors, 3.
