College Visits

College Representatives come to St. Paul’s campus to visit with prospective juniors and seniors and their parents in a small group setting. The visits are scheduled during the fall, primarily during lunch periods but some are scheduled throughout the school day. The meetings last approximately 30-45 minutes. A student must have approval from his or her teacher in order to attend and is responsible for making up any work missed.

Students - How to Attend a Visit

All Scheduled visits are available on Naviance.

Before the visit day:
Sign up to attend the visit through your Naviance portal
If the visit is during lunch, you do not need a pass.

If the visit is during a class time:
• Pick up a Pass in the College Counseling Office.
• Ask your teacher for permission to leave the class (You must ask at least one day before the meeting).

On the visit day:
• Have your teacher sign the pass to permit you out of class.
• Introduce yourself to the representative.
• We will sign the pass for you to return to class.

  • We prefer to schedule visits at 11:45 during lunch. Our students will be instructed to bring their lunch to a private conference room to meet with you. (It is not held in the Cafeteria)
  • If 11:45 does not fit with your schedule, we will be glad to arrange a better time, between 8:00 a.m. and 2:15 p.m.
  • When you arrive on campus, please check in at the front desk, immediately to your left as you walk in the double glass doors. They will give you a Visitor’s Pass and direct you to the Conference Room or the Counseling Office.
  • We will advertise your visit to our students and parents. However, if none are available to meet with you, the counselor will meet with you to share information.
  • In addition to your school visit, you may be interested I attending the Bay Area College Night, hosted by six area College Preparatory Schools each October. For more information, contact Mary Ann Willis at bayareafair@baysideacademy or 261-338-64274
