DuBois Central Catholic’s goal is to produce students are prepared to seek knowledge for its own sake and to pursue study at the finest colleges and universities. College counseling is an important component of life at DuBois Central Catholic for both the student and his or her family. In a sense, college counseling begins as soon as a student enters DuBois Central Catholic. Advisers, teachers, and administrators help each student choose an appropriately challenging class schedule and advise about athletics, extracurricular activities, and standardized tests – all of which can play parts in the college admission process.
