College Counseling

As a college preparatory school, we lead our students from 8th grade to Senior year through the maze of choices to find the right fit for higher learning.

An FCS student starts their college counseling process at the end of 8th grade by working with our counselors to determine which diploma pathway facilitates their larger goals. Students continue through their freshman and sophomore years to take the courses needed to support their interests. As a junior, they have transitioned into our college counseling program in earnest, setting expectations and goals early. Our seniors are fully equipped and supported to take ownership of their high school experience and pursuing their interests at a college level. As a result, our students are accepted into universities and colleges that are the perfect fit for their higher learning experience.

Meet Mrs.Dean

Welcome to the FCS High School Guidance and College Counseling Department. We partner with students and parents to accomplish the mission of our school with individualized student attention in the planning and maintenance of their four years in high school.

As a comprehensive school, we aim to help your student discover their God-given potential and to create a safe environment for them to explore their passions. At Fellowship Christian School, we believe that students are better served when the counseling process is integrated throughout their years at our school. By encouraging a student to seek out their strengths and providing a rich soil for them to grow within, our students are better prepared for the inevitable college admissions process.

Regular communication between student, parents and the counseling team all will significantly increase the chances of making a proper decisions, both for college and in life. We look forward to working with you throughout these amazing transitions in your student's life.
