College Guidance

Our desire is to intentionally partner with parents in the education of their children. Our partnership goal is to assist in identifying and developing a student’s giftedness in order to enable them to glorify God through the use of those gifts. We do this through a commitment to partnering with parents in creating a four-year plan for each student, taking into consideration post-secondary goals. We provide testing opportunities, which help to track students’ intellectual development, as well as career and college guidance to assist students in future planning. In addition, we collaborate with teachers, resource services, and administration in order to care for and encourage the holistic development of our students.
