College & Career Counseling

At Chicago Hope Academy, graduation is not the end; it’s the beginning. Starting freshman year, Hope students explore the questions “Who am I?” “How do I learn best?” and “What do I want to do after I leave Chicago Hope Academy?”

As students ask and seek to answer these questions, they have access to resources and staff for support. The College & Career Counseling Department at Chicago Hope Academy implements a curriculum for all grades, 9-12, designed to prepare students to succeed during their Hope career, their college career, and beyond.

As a part of this curriculum, students take interest inventories, participate in application writing workshops, explore a variety of career paths, and investigate many post-Hope options.

Meet the Counselor

Mr. Oosse is the main contact person for all things college and career related. He’s someone who reads college handbooks for fun and can list random facts of many, many colleges all over the United States. He has a passion for helping students find the right fit, whether that be a 4-year institution, a 2-year institution, or a vocation or trade school. As a former collegiate athlete, Mr. Oosse also has a passion for assisting prospective student-athletes through the recruiting process. Due to Chicago Hope Academy’s small size and family-like culture, Mr. Oosse has the opportunity to get to know every student on a personal level. He loves getting to see Hope’s students grow throughout their time at Hope and excel wherever they end up afterwards.
