Our goal is to help each student develop his or her identity in Christ as a unique individual, created in the image of God, with a plan and a purpose to impact this world for the Lord.

Schedule a Guidance Appointment

We’re here to provide the support your student needs to be successful. Parents and students are invited to schedule one-on-one meetings with the guidance counselor at any time to discuss academics, college preparation, career tracks that include military and vocational career paths and any social or personal concerns. Our goal is to partner with your family to equip you with the support you need through meetings, written resources and suggested next steps to help your family pursue all the Lord has for you.
