The Counseling Department facilitates a comprehensive counseling program that holistically addresses student needs by supporting development in three areas: social/emotional growth, academic achievement and college/career readiness.
We encourage parents and students to inform counselors of any learning, health, personal and/or social problems which may effect a student’s performance. This information is treated with the appropriate professional confidentiality. This information does not become part of the student’s permanent record, nor is it sent to colleges or post-secondary institutions.

The counseling curriculum at McAuley is supported by Naviance, a secure college search database that helps manage the college and career planning process for students and their families. Beginning in their freshman year, all McAuley students are registered and complete a Learning Styles Inventory on Naviance. Each subsequent year, students are introduced to additional tools available on the site to help them with their post-secondary planning. Students and parents can explore college, scholarships, financial aid, and summer opportunities to assist in the college application process.
