From the Counseling Office:

The College Counseling office will begin using the text messaging to communicate with junior and senior families regarding the college admissions process. Announcements may be sent regarding college visits, SAT/ACT registration dates, application reminders, and other deadlines. This system is the same one that Bishop Manogue currently uses to communicate announcements, schedule changes and other events with families. Parents of juniors and seniors will automatically receive these texts. If a parent does not wish to receive these texts or a student wishes to be added to this announcement list, please email Mrs. Welmerink at with the name and the phone number to be added/dropped from the contact list.

Upcoming College Visits

College representatives will be visiting Bishop Manogue this fall to speak with our students. Please consider coming to these presentations if you are interested in the school or if you don’t know anything about the school and want to learn! A student may request a pass to be excused from class for the presentation, but the teacher must approve the request at least one day in advance.
