Counseling Department

The Cathedral Catholic High School Counseling Office is designed to assist students in preparing to be lifelong learners. Students will have a school counselor for freshman year through the fall of junior year to focus on the transition to high school, academic performance, social needs, and college exploration. 

The Counseling Department is located
in the USDHS Academic Center.

Please check in with Mrs. Flynn.
