Counseling Department

The Cathedral Catholic Counseling Office offers academic, college/career, and social emotional support based on grade specific needs.  Students are assigned by last name to a school counselor for freshman year through fall of junior year to focus on their transition to high school, academic performance, social needs, and college exploration. In the spring of junior year, students will transition to their college counselor to finalize and execute their post-high school plan. While all students will meet individually with their counselor, we encourage students to make individual appointments with their counselor as needed. 

The Counseling Department is located
in the USDHS Academic Center.

Please check in with Mrs. Flynn.
