College Readiness Counseling

Preparing Our Students for College Success

The College Counseling Office works with students and their families throughout all four years at Detroit Cristo Rey.

Many of our students are the first in their families to attend college, therefore we coach both parents and students on the college application process and the college experience.

Our counselors work with students to identify colleges that match their interests and strengths. College counselors offer guidance on college planning, the college application process, standardized tests, financial aid, scholarships and summer enrichment programs. Each year, we host college admission representatives.
