A Private Christian School Engaging Hearts and Minds

Guidance & Counseling

The mission of the College Guidance Office is to partner with families to provide an environment conducive to developing an individualized college and career plan for the student to be successful in God’s plan for their life.

We can successfully meet the above mission statement by providing:

  • Individual academic planning encouraging rigorous academic curriculum. (Overseen by the High School Dean of Academics through one-on-one academic advising meetings and through the class ign-ups parent meetings held in February and March of each year).
  • Specialized social and emotional learning testing with guides to compatible careers.
  • Opportunities for students to experience a variety of college and career directions.
  • Biblical integration encouraging the discovery of a student’s calling or vocation.

The Lord created each student to be unique in His image with gifts and talents to be used for His glory.  I am very excited to be working with the students as they discover the next step in God's plan for their education.  Some students will attend a four-year institution, some will attend a two-year institution, and some will start apprenticeships and careers.  Each path is important as God has different plans for each student's future.

I am available for information on college and career readiness, Naviance, scholarships, and grants. Please feel free to contact me by email!  

Blessings,
