Guidance department awaits college acceptances and scholarship awards


As the end of the school year approaches, Archbishop Carroll’s guidance department is asking for seniors to send in their college acceptances and scholarships. 

Miss Marguerite DiMattia, the director of guidance, is asking for the senior class to send in college acceptances as they come in. The information will be put into the graduation booklet. 

Unfortunately, the seniors have been very slow in responding to our appeals to send in acceptances and scholarship information,” said Miss DiMattia. “We’ve been asking for this for months.” 

Only 43 students out of 154 have sent in college acceptance letters and scholarship awards so far. The scholarship awards have totaled more than $10 million.

Among the 43 who have complied with the guidance department’s request is Sofia Cunicelli.

“I have already heard back from all of my colleges and sent my acceptances in,” Cunicelli said. “I am committed to West Chester University!” 

Senior Madison Mitchell turned in one acceptance but is still waiting on a few decisions. 

“I just sent in my acceptance to Howard University,” said Mitchell. “I have a few more decisions I am waiting on, but I knew that I couldn’t wait to send in the acceptances I already have.”

The guidance department gives seniors three options to send in college acceptances and scholarship awards. Students can bring a hard copy of an acceptance letter or a scholarship award to the guidance department on the third floor in the east tower. Students can forward to their guidance counselor a college acceptance email or a scholarship award.  Lastly, students can take a screenshot of the college portal that notes the acceptance or scholarship and send that to the guidance department. 

The deadline to send them is early May. 

In an effort to encourage students, the guidance department hosts a competition for the senior class. The senior homeroom with the largest amount of scholarships wins a donut breakfast. Homeroom 1A is in the lead.  

Guidance will also be sending out a survey in April for all seniors to fill out. Final transcripts will not be sent out until the form is completed.  

“We hope that more seniors will send in their information so we will be able to complete the reports the diocese asks for from each school,” said Miss DiMattia. “We want to be able to brag about our Carroll students!”
