College Counseling at Cistercian is an integral part of the school’s overall counseling program, designed to lead young men to a deeper understanding of their individual talents, characteristic learning styles, academic interests and vocational goals. The college admissions process at Cistercian is, therefore, viewed as a developmental process. Its purpose is not only to assist students in finding colleges that meet their needs and match their academic strengths and interests, but also to engage each student in a process of self-assessment. Parents, Form Master, faculty members and college counselor all encourage each student’s aspirations while supporting the young man in taking personal responsibility and initiative for the college process. The college counseling process serves as a capstone experience in fulfilling the school’s motto, Ardere et Lucere , so that each graduate will go forth and enlighten the world in which we all live.
