College Counseling

The goal of the Christian Heritage School college counseling program is to foster students’ academic, personal, and spiritual growth as they explore their abilities, passions, strengths, and interests through class guidance, assessments, and individualized counseling. Students who find the greatest success in the college process are students who own the process with careful planning, self-reflection, and utilization of resources available to them. These resources include the college counselor and registrar, newsletters, class guidance, college visits, presentations, and workshops.

Historically, 98% of our students matriculate to a wide array of institutions ranging from highly-selective colleges to technical programs, building upon the strong educational foundation of Christian Heritage School.

Feel free to explore the college counseling website for important documents and information relating to the college process.
