College Counseling

The Office of College Counseling embraces the Augustinian core values of veritas, unitas, and caritas – truth, unity, and love – to guide Austin Prep students through the entire college process. Our team works closely with students to help them explore their unique intellectual abilities, passions, talents, and personal values and identify the colleges and universities that best suit their ambitions and aspirations. 


The Office of College Counseling hosts over 100 visits annually from college admissions representatives, including this information session with Boston College.
