Sacred Heart's Guidance Office offers a comprehensive and developmental program for high school students in grades 7-12.
Guidance Counselors provide academic advising and college counseling which fosters self-awareness and promotes academic and career exploration. Through individual appointments, in group sessions, classes, workshops and presentations, Sacred Heart students are prepared to make responsible decisions regarding their own education and career goals. The Guidance Office also provides information on current national testing programs, scholarship opportunities and innovative college programs.
The Sacred Heart guidance counselors endeavor to foster the personal, social, academic, and spiritual growth of each student throughout his/her school career. As a college preparatory school, part of our mission is to prepare students for the next stage in their academic journey, entrance into higher education.
Counselors interact with students both individually and in group settings during all six years. Our goal is carried out by providing students at all levels, with appropriate academic advising; to supply students with the college and career information necessary for effective decision making, and to provide counseling as it relates to school performance.
Counselors offer academic counseling that deals with the student’s practical needs: study skills, student/teacher collaboration, peer relationships, course selection, career information, testing, and college selection.
Connect with Success is a six-year plan created by the Sacred Heart High School Guidance Department and styled to ensure that each student succeed in college and the world beyond our 100 acre campus in Kingston, MA.

The program is crafted to provide every Sacred Heart student with:
- An academic program designed to challenge each student’s intellectual commitment
- A spirituality encompassing love of God and respect for self and others
- The skills and information necessary to make realistic and constructive decisions and to share one’s gifts and talents.
