Seton Welcomes New Director of College Counseling

We are delighted to welcome Maritza Velasquez-Paolucci to Elizabeth Seton High School as our Director of College Counseling. In addition to holding a Master of Education Coursework from the University of Maryland, College Park, and a Bachelor of Arts in Communication/Public Relations from East Carolina University, she has an extensive professional history in college counseling, admissions and student support at secondary and higher education institutions.

Mrs. Velasquez-Paolucci comes to us most recently from DeMatha Catholic High School where she was the Associate Director of College Counseling. At DeMatha, Mrs. Velasquez-Paolucci was valued for her enthusiasm, empathy and candor in counseling students and their parents through the college search and application process. She coordinated school-wide PSAT and mock SAT/ACT, built strong, effective relationships with university, scholarship and military representatives and implemented efficient processes for information and data sharing for students, parents and staff. We are fortunate to welcome such an experienced and dedicated professional and leader to our team and look forward to the positive role she will play in the college admissions process for our students and families.
