College Counseling

The Community Christian School Counseling Office provides a supportive environment for students and families to make informed choices involving appropriate college placement by providing resource materials, offering counsel, and assisting in the submission of applications. Recognizing that each child is unique, counselors strive to help each student identify his or her strengths, values, and interests before determining which colleges best meet the student’s needs and goals.  Support is individualized, proactive, and empowers the student to take ownership of the process. College counseling at CCS is a cumulative process beginning in middle school. Students are exposed to a variety of opportunities to explore potential colleges, majors, and careers through various avenues.  All students at CCS create a GaCollege411.org account that helps students plan, apply, and pay for college.

College Information for 9th and 10th Grade Students and Parents

Students have a fresh start in the 9th grade. Their high school courses and grades will form the transcript sent to colleges. College admission is based most strongly on a student's high school grades and the rigor or difficulty of the courses they have taken.  The time to visit and apply to college may seem far away, but everything a student does in grades 9-12, including grades, activities, leadership roles, travel, jobs, and accomplishments will be part of that application process. College and scholarship applications often request information about a student's extracurricular activities. Parents can help students keep a record of all honors and awards, activities including sports and clubs, community service, church activities, travel, hobbies, jobs, camps, courses, and anything else that sets the student apart. It is important to note any leadership positions.

College Information for 11th and 12th Grade Students and Parents

Juniors and seniors receive college fair dates and locations, SAT and ACT dates and strategies, scholarship opportunities, and financial aid tips. Seniors may take three days for college visits throughout their senior year to help in the college selection process. Parent and student meetings at each grade level, extensive individual advising of juniors and seniors, college fairs and on campus visits, and opportunities to meet representatives from colleges and universities from across the country are aspects of college selection.
