COLLEGE COUNSELING

The College Counseling Department helps to prepare the pathway from high school to college by partnering with ninth through twelfth grade students and their parents. We offer information sessions for freshmen and their parents and conduct more individualized counseling for subsequent high school years.  The focus is not only on finding the right college, but we seek to guide each student as they explore how the Lord has uniquely made and gifted them. Interest inventories, personality assessments and career inventories are utilized along with personal attention from the college team to guide each student through the college process. Our goal is that each student finds his or her best fit and continues to grow academically, socially and spiritually.

 

 

 'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope'" 
(Jeremiah 29:11 ESV).
