Counseling Department

Joliet Catholic Academy’s Counseling Department delivers a comprehensive, developmental, results-based school counseling program that promotes and enhances student success. The Counseling Department consists of four school counselors, the Director of Diversity & Inclusion, and a counseling secretary. Our Director of Diversity and Inclusion works with our students to make sure each and every one of them feels valued at JCA. School counselors offer individual counseling and deliver a counseling curriculum focused on their students’ growth in three domains: academic, personal/social development, and college/career. The college/career counselors design and provide resources and curriculum for college/career readiness, collaborates with the school counselors, and works with students and their families throughout the college search and application process. Students are assigned a college/career counselor at the beginning of their junior year.
