Welcome to the College & Career Counseling Center!

The purpose of the College & Career Counseling program is to facilitate four-year partnerships with each family to ensure that all Purcell Marian students are working toward enrollment in college, employment in a career, or enlistment in the military upon graduation from high school.  This new site will serve as an important resource tool for families in supporting their students in these endeavors, so be sure and check back regularly!
