In accord with Holy Redeemer’s mission and philosophy, Guidance Department personnel promote a program which will help each student develop the values of personal dignity, self-esteem, self-worth and mutual respect. While encouraging students to celebrate their God given talents and uniqueness in all facets of their lives – personal, social, cultural and academic – our program is geared toward enhancing ability to be compassionate, responsible and productive individuals, imbued with integrity, generosity and humanitarian ideals. As the students move beyond Holy Redeemer into their colleges and their careers/professions, our goal is that they reflect the Christ-centeredness of their high school experience.
