The purpose of the Guidance Counseling program at Grace Christian School is to assist and support students in planning and preparing for their education beyond high school. This includes assisting with high school course selections, encouraging extracurricular activities and community service projects, and providing other appropriate experiences inside and outside of the school setting to promote growth and learning.
Colleges from around the country seek our GCS grads. Admissions representatives tell us that our graduates stand out in their love of learning, positive community involvement, and extracurricular activities.
God uniquely created all people in His image and for His purpose. For this reason, the Grace Christian School Guidance Counseling office seeks to encourage development and growth in each student’s beliefs and academic abilities through their propensity for learning about their character, their world, and their future(Genesis 1:27 / Proverbs 19:21).
