Oaks Christian college counselors seek to facilitate the successful navigation of college preparation, exploration, and admissions process for students and their families with a deliberate focus on fulfilling God's call to live a life of purpose.
Applying to college is a critical point of personal transition, and the counseling staff walks students through the process beginning in ninth grade and culminating with seniors choosing the best college for them. We work to demystify the college admission process and teach students where and how they can exert control. Using the most current technical tools, we enable students to become informed stakeholders and responsible decision makers. We know the college admissions process is a family experience, so we invite parents to work with us to help students plan for college.
Parent and student programs give an overview as well as a focus to the priorities and direction for the years ahead. High school students at are assigned an individual college counselor in the fall of tenth grade. Ninth grade students are welcome in the counseling office anytime and are encouraged to visit with any available counselor. Please open the panel boxes to view student progress during high school.
On College Decision Day, many of the Oaks Christian seniors celebrated their college choice in the senior parking lot, decorating their cars in a tailgate event to represent their school spirit. They celebrated with balloons, spirit wear for their respective colleges, and baked goods decorated with their college initials and mascots. Throughout the lunch period, volunteer moms provided the seniors with food and ice cream. Faculty and staff, wearing spirit gear from their own alma mater, also pitched in to help celebrate the successes of our future graduates!
