College Counseling

In the spirit of Mid-Pacific's Mission Statement of preparing students to become compassionate and responsible lifelong learners and global citizens, the goal of the College Counseling Department is to provide our students with information and opportunities for their lives to come.

Our College Counseling Advisory Program includes eight sessions per year. We start freshmen off with making the most of their high school career, moving to career exploration as sophomores, college exploration as juniors and ending with supporting seniors with their college applications and decision-making process. Individual conferences with students and parents will start in Grade 11.

The College Counseling Department also sponsors annual college tours for students to California and the Pacific Northwest. Trips to the East Coast and Colorado have also been planned.

In the Fall of 2019, we hosted over 220 colleges from around the world to meet with Mid-Pacific students. If you are a college representative and would like to schedule a visit, please go to or contact our office at 808-973-5046. Our college visits are open to juniors and seniors.

We invite students and families to visit the College Counseling Office in Damon Hall. We have a selection of college guidebooks as well as information on financial aid, testing, scholarships and summer programs. Stop in!
