Welcome to the Office of School Counseling and College Planning at Bishop John J. Snyder High School where a comprehensive and confidential setting ensures students receive professional assistance with their academic, interpersonal, college and career planning needs. Our office encourages and empowers students to engage in a rewarding high school experience that yields both personal and college-bound benefits. Our trained and certified school counselors are blessed to live their vocation and offer tailored support services via individual appointments, classroom visits and college readiness events – all centered on our mission statement’s 3 C’s of Competence, Conscience and Compassion.

At Bishop John J. Snyder our student to counselor ratio combined with our open door policy affords each student the opportunity to develop and maintain a relationship with his or her school counselor beyond the required annual individual academic appointments. We believe this allows students to be better informed about and best prepared for their post secondary options.

The Office of School Counseling and College Services is an integral entity of the multidisciplinary team to support student success. Our school counselors are available during school hours. Appointments are preferred, but students may visit at any time.
