Florida Christian School offers a comprehensive college counseling program for high school students. As part of its mission, it seeks to challenge students to reach their academic potential and encourage them to realize their God-given gifts and talents. The objective of the office of college counseling at Florida Christian School is to provide high school students and their families with the knowledge needed for college admission. This is an individualized process that begins in 9th grade and continues through the end of the senior year.
College Admission has become an increasingly competitive and complex process and the office of college counseling exists to offer students the tools needed to successfully transition from high school to college. Beginning in 9th grade, students are provided with career and academic counseling. In the junior and senior years, college counseling becomes an intensive, multi-faceted process.
