College/Career Planning

The role of college counseling is to help students translate their unique abilities and interests into post-secondary education goals, and ultimately, satisfying careers. It is our intent to provide students with the tools, resources, and individual support necessary to discover the colleges that best fit their skills and aspirations.

To that end, we help students understand the admission process, consider upper school curriculum options, research colleges, narrow their choices, and apply to a variety of suitable schools, all the while keeping in mind that the Lord has a plan for each of them. We strive to make the process manageable, personal, and enjoyable for each family in accordance with the mission statement of Whitinsville Christian School.
