Guidance Services

About The Guidance Department

The Ursuline High School Guidance Department provides a variety of pupil personnel services. The responsibility of the counselors is to provide guidance and counseling services to assist students in their personal, academic, career and college choices. All of the members of the department are professionally trained educators.

All counselors meet with every assigned student to assess the student’s personal development and offer their assistance. They monitor progress reports and failures. They see students at the request of teachers, parents, or students themselves. Professional guidelines of confidentiality are maintained in student-counselor contacts.

Beginning in the freshmen year, guidance counselors begin to work with all students concerning academic scheduling, progress, and future planning. The freshman/sophomore guidance counselor is Mrs. Lori Bagnola. At the conclusion of the sophomore year, students are transitioned to the junior/senior counselor, Miss Anne Cadle.

Beginning in the junior year and continuing throughout the senior year, counselors work closely with students on issues of college investigation, selection, and application. College news and scholarship bulletins are regularly published throughout the year. Mrs. Cadle also provides career guidance by assisting students through the use of evaluation instruments and instruction in the availability and use of textual and computerized career resources.
