College Counseling
The Father Ryan College Counselors provide a student-centered, developmentally appropriate approach to the college search and application process, beginning in the 9th grade. All three College Counselors have worked in selective college admissions and assist students throughout the process, from the first step of self-discovery through college enrollment. The College Counseling team hosts several programs for students and/or parents throughout the year to inform them about the college admissions process.

The Class of 2021

Father Ryan High School graduates have performed on stages, made life-saving discoveries, become business executives and entrepreneurs and defended our freedom in service to our country. They have attended the nation’s finest colleges and universities. They have built a lasting legacy, and one we will remember. And it all started with Father Ryan. They are known. They are loved.
