At St. Luke's, we spend our days talking to students about their dreams and ambitions. Our goal is to know each student in and out of the classroom. This makes the college counseling process more comfortable for our students, and more likely to produce a great fit. We work one-on-one with our students and their families, making your priorities, our priorities.

Check out our own Sonia Bell, Director of College Counseling, quoted in this May 2021 article from The New York Times, "High Schools Are Posting Their College Lists. Don’t Be Misled."  

She says, "There was a point when I felt as though my job as a college counselor felt like the role of our basketball or football coaches. The results were not only public to our families but to other schools, and it was like ‘We beat them’ or ‘They beat us.’ And I said, ‘No, no, no, that is not what this is.’”

We want the college counseling process to mark the end of a great journey through St. Luke’s. It is a time for students to reflect on their relationships and experiences—and a time for making a lot of decisions. We hope students focus on what they want rather than what colleges want. These are bold, smart, interesting, creative, joyful, curious, compassionate, talented and kind young people. Any school would be lucky to have them."
