College Counseling

The College Counseling office at Mullen is committed to supporting students and families throughout a comprehensive and individualized college search and application process. We assist students in finding the right fit for college based on academics, affordability, and an atmosphere in which they can further develop their talents and interests.  
Students are encouraged to take ownership of their college process through self-reflection, exploring interests, and considering college options where they can thrive and meet their future goals.

The College Counseling office provides a wide array of programs and meetings to educate students and their families about their opportunities after graduation from Mullen.

Students are at the center of what we do.
We look forward to working with you throughout this exciting time!

NCAA/NAIA Athletic Recruitment

The NCAA and the NAIA are the two athletic governing bodies for Varsity collegiate athletics. Students interested in participating in Varsity collegiate athletics are encouraged to meet with their College Counselor early in high school to discuss their goals and aspirations. Student-athletes should discuss their athletic goals and potential level of competition with their coaches. Mullen’s College Counselors provide advice and support in navigating not only the Eligibility Center process, but strategies on how to become a recruited student-athlete by a collegiate Varsity program.

Testing (ACT/SAT)

Admissions requirements for testing vary, and students should check with their individual colleges of interest to determine their policies. Mullen’s College Counselors can assist students in determining which examinations should be taken and their overall standardized testing strategy. Some form of college admissions testing (ACT or SAT) is usually required. For a list of the over 1000 colleges that do not require college entrance testing or have alternative requirements to testing, go to FairTest.org.
