Welcome to the Benet Academy Counseling Department.
We offer comprehensive services to students as they enter high school. Benet provides professional support to all students throughout their four years. Students are assigned a counselor in their freshman year, and they stay with this counselor through their junior year. Seniors are assigned to college counselors who specialize in the college selection and admission process. Students begin working with their college counselor during junior year.
