Guidance always welcomes parents and encourages parents to schedule an appointment to meet with their son's counselor as often as is needed.
The Guidance Department consists of Mr. Richard Magner, director, Mrs. Joan Tomasiello, Mr. Mark Lambert and Mr. James Collins. Each counselor is responsible for a quarter of the student body. He or she follows from freshmen year through graduation. Counselors provide adjustment and academic counseling as well as college placement, career choices, and other post-graduate pursuits.
In addition to maintaining student's permanent records, the guidance department administers the Preliminary Scholastic Assessment Test (PSAT) the SAT , and finally SAT Subject Tests.
Throughout the school year, the department holds a number of programs for students and parents to provide them with academic information as well as college and financial aid planning. The Guidance Department utilizes Naviance, a web based college and career search program to aid in the college selection and application process. www.connection.naviance.com/xavierct Guidance has introduced Naviance to all four grades. In the beginning of each year, Freshmen will be introduced to the program as they meet with their counselors.
