 Guidance Services

​The Guidance and Counseling Department, staffed by two full-time guidance counselors and a secretary, provides opportunities to students for growth in self-knowledge, understanding of others, and preparation for the future.

Each year, numerous colleges and universities visit Greensburg Central Catholic to meet with interested students. These visits are open to all juniors and seniors as long as the student signs up in advance. Parents may also arrange to view their child's school record by making an appointment with the guidance counselor. At least 24-hours notice is requested for these appointments.

 PA Governor's School for the Sciences

​The Pennsylvania Department of Education established the Pennsylvania Governor's School for the Sciences (PGSS) in order to provide a summer enrichment experience in the sciences and mathematics for Pennsylvania high school students. Talented high school students in science and math, who are residents of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and currently enrolled in their junior year are invited to apply for the Pennsylvania Governor's School for the Sciences. The PGSS program is hosted by Mellon College of Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh.
