Cristo Rey De La Salle (CRDLS) recognizes that critical doors open and limitless opportunities arise when a college degree is earned. We are committed to assisting you with your dream of college admissions, acceptance, and graduation from college.
The College Counseling Department promotes college and career readiness through a diverse assortment of opportunities offered to our students.
College and Career Preparation Classes for Juniors and Seniors
College counseling is provided to inform students about university benefits, requirements, and financial aid. All Juniors and Seniors have a College and Career Preparation class embedded in their schedule.
Juniors begin their college preparation by starting their college list, learning about college systems, working on their resume and activities list, starting their personal statements and major and career exploration.
Seniors receive support through the entire application and enrollment process including completing all college applications, financial aid applications, and support in their transition to college.
College-Going Culture Seminar
College counselors visit 9th and 10th grade mentor classes to inform students about the college process and what they should be doing as 9th and 10th graders to prepare for college.
College Rep Visits
If you are a college interested in visiting our school, please email our college counselors Ms. Mederos, firstname.lastname@example.org or Ms. Duenas, email@example.com to set up an appointment.
CRDLS students will be able to visit colleges and universities on official school trips. These will be fantastic opportunities for our students to see first-hand what the college experience will be, from visiting dorms, dining halls, to classrooms and campus libraries.
Southern California College Trip
A group of 11th grade students will also have the opportunity to visit several colleges in a three day trip to Southern California where students have the opportunity to visit schools outside of their local area.
Summer enrichment programs are one of the best ways for high school students to hone their skills and pursue their passions. By exploring areas of interest outside the classroom our students gain insights and perspectives that enhance their college applications, and the confidence they need to go away to college. Students are informed of any summer programs we learn about and also receive help in applying to these summer programs.
