Welcome to the Rosati-Kain Student Support Services Department! Within these pages, our goal is to give you an overview of our services. Please feel free to contact us if you need further assistance.
Our department consists of two full-time school counselors, Mrs. Jamie Burke and Mrs. Mary Wald.
Mrs. Burke is the Director of School Counseling and is trained and experienced in college, career, and academic counseling, personal and social issues as they impact the school day, in developing and administering individualized learning profiles for diagnosed needs, as well as administering and interpreting standardized testing. Mrs. Burke is also the Rosati-Kain A+ Coordinator. For more information, check out the A+ Schools Program Handbook. Rosati-Kain hosts many college admissions representatives throughout the school day and provides plentiful resources for the college search, application, and scholarships.
Mrs. Wald is the Director of Wellness and is trained and experienced in the management of personal and social issues as they impact the students. Mrs. Wald coordinates grade level presentations, school-wide assemblies, and other programming around the social, emotional, and academic wellness of the Rosati-Kain students. Mrs. Wald also coordinates the implementation of individualized learning profiles for diagnosed student needs.
Our office maintains an updated list of outside referrals if needed.

Where do R-K graduates go to college?
In the past two years, Rosati-Kain graduates have enrolled at more than 70 colleges and universities across the United States and internationally. There is no one school for the R-K students: some select small liberal arts institutions, others go on to big research universities. Some stay close to home, while others opt to go thousands of miles away.
