College Counseling

Department of College Counseling

Welcome to the CCHS Department of College Counseling!

Our mission is to provide students and parents with timely and accurate counseling to navigate the college decision process. The most important part of this process is the concept of “fit.” Ultimately, we partner with the family in the college admission process. The “driver” in the process must be the student. Parents, faculty, and counselors are “coaches.”

"College is a fit to be made, not a prize to be won."
Along this journey, we will provide our students with many different opportunities to be exposed to various colleges and universities. Additionally, we will host informational sessions for students and parents and provide group counseling opportunities starting in the freshman year. In the junior year, we will begin meeting individually with each student to review college plans based on students’ previous research and give guidance as to which college options would be the best fit for the student’s unique calling and interests.

The College Counselors adhere to the following principles as they advise students and parents:
  • We focus on college enrollment and the processes that lead to that decision.
  • We advise students as to their best options for college based on the “best fit” for a particular student.
  • We will not tell students where they cannot apply or where they should enroll.
  • We will give Biblical guidance throughout the process although we are NOT guidance counselors
  • We work diligently to stay current on college admissions trends at both the state and national levels.
  • We may not have all the answers, but our college admissions experience enables us to better understand the nuances of college enrollment management and guide high school students through the college admission process.
Please take time to review the resources given on this page. We look forward to walking the journey to college with you.
