Lake Country Christian School’s college counselor meets with students to help them customize individual college and career plans, including searching, applying, financing, and selecting their “best fit” colleges based on their passions and interests as aligned with God’s calling.
The college counseling process begins in the sophomore year and ramps up as they continue through high school. See timeline. (We allow freshmen to adjust to high school before increasing their pressure in thinking about college.)
All high school students have access to Naviance to assist them throughout the college search and application process. Naviance is a web-based college counseling information system that is a college information resource for both students and parents. Students will be trained in how to use this system.
The college application process is a collaborative effort. While the college counselor is proactive in the process, students are both encouraged and expected to take ownership in researching colleges, registering for tests, completing applications and meeting deadlines.
Our counselor is also available to meet with both parents and students as often as needed or desired.
