The Holy Family Catholic High School Counseling Center builds relationships that impact student growth in three domains: academic development, career development, and social/emotional development.

Our guidance department supports a growth mindset that empowers students, encourages personal responsibility for future success, and advocates for their best interests, preparing students for life after high school.

Our guidance staff to student ratio is 1:140, considerably less than the Minnesota average of 1:743.  The American School Counseling Association (ASCA) recommends a counselor-to-student ratio of 1:250 (ASCA, 2015).
