Photos of La Lumiere SchoolLa Lumiere's commitment to preparing students for college has resulted in a 100% college placement record. The College Counseling office educates La Lumiere students in the process of decision-making with the goal of helping students find colleges where they will be challenged, where they will be happy, and where they will succeed.

We attempt to do this with as little stress and pressure on students as possible.  We want students to find the best colleges for each of them individually. 

To accomplish these goals, we provide each student with the one-to-one assistance of the College Counselor.  In recent years, students have been accepted to schools such as Purdue University, Stanford University, Indiana University, University of Notre Dame, DePaul University, University of Michigan, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Loyola University Chicago, Butler University, Knox College, Creighton University and Michigan State.
