College Guidance


College Guidance

Counselors guide students through the college admissions process beginning freshman year and walk alongside them until they graduate senior year. Counselors work with students to build their knowledge of the college search, finding their fit, how to create the college list, planning for testing, financial aid and scholarships. Future planning is individualized to meet the needs of a student where he is and achieve his goals. The Sacramento Private and Parochial Schools College Fair, Jesuit Excellence Tour, College Information Night, and Paying for College Financial Aid events are hosted each fall. In addition, over 100 college admission representatives visit campus each fall to meet with interested students from all grade levels.

This includes scholarships to all institutions, private scholarships, essay contests, etc. Please enter the full amount of the award, and note if it is a multi-year award or a one-year annual amount. Dollar amounts are used only for internal reporting purposes.

Jesuit High School Standardized Testing Accommodations Submission Policy (PSAT/SAT/ACT)

Getting ready for SAT/ACT accommodations

Any student needing college admissions testing accommodations needs full educational testing to prove the need for the accommodations. This educational testing includes both cognitive and achievement assessments. An example of a common accommodation is extended-time testing. Additionally, students need to be using the accommodations regularly in school and they need to have an Academic Support Plan in place through the Academic Support Center.
