The counseling department at Brother Rice is one of the best in the area. Throughout the four years, students will be assigned one of the many counselors.

Today, Mrs. Antos gave us an inside look at the program. She has been a counselor to many students at Rice and has created many relationships.

Mrs. Antos said, “When freshmen come in, we want to build a relationship with them and make them feel comfortable in their new setting. We meet with freshmen two times, same with the rest of the three years.”

One of Mrs. Antos’s students, senior Kevin Connolly said, “I loved building a relationship with Mrs. Antos and will just walk into her office to talk.”

The counselors help students with everything from emotional problems and to applying to college.

An anonymous student said, “I went to Mrs. Antos about a personal issue and she helped me work through that. She is always there, and I consider her one of my favorite people at Rice. I am not sure what I would do without her. She is just always there.”

The counselors at Brother Rice are top-notch and handle one of the most important functions at the school.
