Mrs. Janet Kelly

College Counselor

Jan Kelly is the College Counselor for Pope Francis Preparatory School, after serving in the same capacity at Cathedral High School for two years. A graduate of Mount Holyoke College (BS) and Indiana University (MS) in guidance and student personnel, she has had a long career in higher and secondary education, working for 20+ years in college admissions and financial aid at Macalester College, Lesley University and Curry College. She decided to try “the other side” of the desk and served as the Director of College Counseling at the Bancroft School in Worcester for eight years. Working as a college advisor allows Jan to work more closely with students, something that she loves. She lives in Amherst with her husband, two children, Clare and Liam, and dog, Joey. Jan is an avid high school sports fan; you can find her on the sidelines cheering on Pope Francis athletes.
