Academic Counseling

One of the important concerns parents have for the future of their children centers around the subject of college. Statistics prove that students graduating from private Christian schools are twice as likely to graduate college, (60% vs. 30% of students who attend public school) In response to this, FCS is expanding its college readiness program for all students in grades 6–12.

Jennifer Payne, FCS Guidance Counselor, meets with every student one-on-one to discover their goals and plans for college after high school. She also offers individualized sessions with every student, college admissions assistance, essay writing aid, and direction regarding scholarship resources and financial aid. Students are able to sign up for sessions as needed with Mrs. Payne after an initial focus meeting to determine student direction.

FCS hosts an annual College Readiness Night where we welcome a panel of university admissions counselors to share their expertise and insights on steps students and parents can take at various stages of their education to be optimally prepared for college.  Also dicussed is choosing a college/university, important admission criteria, and financial aid/scholarships.  Parents and students sixth grade and above and encouarged to attend and ask questions from local admissions experts.

We are committed to helping our students be Faith Forward, College Ready
