The School Counseling Team exists to provide parents and students with the support they need to discover God's next step for their academic pursuits and personal development. We work with students individually to help them identify strengths, priorities, and interests in order to find the best match during their college search. Through workshops, informational meetings, and college fairs, we help parents navigate the college application process alongside their student. Spiritual and social guidance are also integrated into our counseling approach to help students mature spiritually and socially.
The primary goal for underclassmen is to establish a strong academic plan that will be the foundation for their future college planning. These early high school years are vital to determine the academic track that is best suited for the individual needs and interests of the student. Counselors help challenge and direct toward students toward a rigorous but realistic academic plan.
Junior & Senior Years
While continuing on their academic plan, specific college planning details are formulated collaboratively between the student, parent, and school counselor. Action steps are created after discussion of the vital factors that contribute to college selection such as location, academic programs, the student’s ideal career focus, and size and type of college. Counselors equip and empower students to take initiative and lead this ongoing process of college admissions.
To post or not to post? That is the question. CCA’s upperclassmen School Counselors, Dr. Cliff Mack and Joan Ramsay, discuss the role social media plays in college admissions and employment opportunities, share cautionary tales, and equip parents with practical ways they can guide their children to use social media in a positive, constructive, and Christ-like manner.
We want students to be lifelong learners. Our faculty, programs, and curriculum culminate to an academic experience that prepares students for college and beyond — and there’s always room for improvement. Thanks to your support, preparing for college became a whole lot easier for CCA students.
