As a college preparatory high school, it is the goal of the College Advising Department to support students and families in their journey of self-reflection and discovery, culminating in finding the best "fit" college or university - a place where students may be challenged, happy, and healthy as they continue their journeys after high school. Throughout a student’s four years at Savio, it is our goal to assist each student as a valued individual and provide the personal attention that our students deserve. Students are expected to take an active role in the process and participate in all college planning activities, and we will be available to offer strong support every step of the way.
