Guidance Counseling

FAQ About What We Do

Whether students need help with a personal matter or an academic one, our Director of Guidance and Counseling, Susan Hymel, is available to meet with students and their parents throughout their Loyola journey.

Because Catholic education extends beyond intellectual mastery, all students are beneficiaries of the counseling program. It provides a developmental approach to students and also supports the academic, spiritual and psychological growth of each student.

Our goal is to help students make the most of their high school education by providing support to help them reach personal and educational goals. We do this using the following methods:

  • discussing values, perspectives and issues
  • providing information and strategies
  • sharing achievements and helping with concerns when facing challenges

Upon entering Loyola, students will work with the guidance counselor to address personal needs and all aspects of their academic program. In grades eleven and twelve, students additionally work with Glad Alexander, the Director of College Placement, who will assist with college selection and course planning for the junior and senior years.

Our doors are open to all, and we look forward to sharing in future successes, addressing any questions and offering support.
