College Counseling

St. Francis School’s approach to college advising: find the very best college match for each individual student. Leslie O’Connor brings twenty years of experience in college admissions and college counseling in Los Angeles, Boston, New York and Louisville. She believes that guiding students and families through the college process is a great privilege and considers her role as a “guide on the side” in helping navigate the complexities of the college admission and financial aid process. Leslie recognizes that applying to college entails self-reflection and discovery and the journey is as important as the destination. Leslie believes that assisting students in finding the best individual fit for college is the most important goal in counseling students.
