College Counseling

At Don Bosco Cristo Rey High School, the College Counseling Department prepares each student to undertake the transition from high school to college by identifying the right college choices, through research and preparation, making all students college bound ready. At Don Bosco Cristo Rey High School we provide students with a rigorous college bound preparatory program tailored towards juniors and seniors, where they meet twice a week, and are advised in resume building, personal essay writing, SAT/ACT preparation, FAFSA completion, college/scholarship review & submission, financial literacy, and CSS-Profile completion.

Students are held to the highest standards and are responsible for registering for appropriate tests and completing applications, while meeting all deadline requirements. The college counselor is here to advise, encourage, challenge and support students as they set academic and career goals. Students and parents are encouraged to meet with the college counselor in late junior and early senior year to begin this process.

To schedule a meeting with the college counselor, please contact her via email at arevalor@dbcr.org or 301-891-4750 ext.112.
