College Counseling

Welcome to Episcopal's College Counseling website!
As a college preparatory school both in curriculum and philosophy, Episcopal has a comprehensive college counseling program that begins in eighth grade and supports students along the way to selecting the college they will attend after graduation.

The three college counselors increase students’ and families' knowledge of and familiarity with the college admissions process through personal advising, group meetings, and information sessions. Since Episcopal’s student to college counselor ratio of 30:1 is significantly below the private school national average of 71:1,* students are able to develop a unique rapport with their assigned counselor.

Throughout their time at Episcopal, students discover and cultivate their strengths, grow as scholars and citizens, and enrich the school community and the world around them. The work of the college counselors is to help students understand how these different aspects of their lives shape the college search process and will inform their final decision on a college.

For the Class of 2013, 75% applied to at least one school outside of Louisiana, and over 48% went on to attend college outside of Louisiana.

Most importantly, though, Episcopal graduates matriculate at schools that offer them the best fit along the criteria they established in their search – schools where they are happy to live, comfortably challenged, and poised to succeed.
