Students in graduation
The college bound Class of 2019 at St. Benedict's Prep

One-on-One College Placement

Many high schools will assign you a college counselor. St. Benedict's Prep puts an entire team of counselors, faculty and staff behind every student. The goal of the College Guidance Office is to help graduating seniors choose the best-fit college or university where they will persist and be successful. That's why Gray Bees matriculate to such a wide range of schools each year that include: the Ivy League, historically Black colleges and universities, the nation's leading Catholic & Jesuit colleges, private and public institutions in New Jersey, and more.

Our College Placement Process

Here are just a few of the practices and programs we use to accompany our students through the college application process.

This track record of success is partly due to our intentional College Placement program. It's also due to the hard work, discipline and resilience students build during their time at The Hive.
