The College Counseling department works with students in grades 9 through 12 to facilitate the transition between high school and college. The process moves from more generalized programs for freshman and sophomores to increasingly individualized services for upperclassmen. Our goals are to assist students in intentional discernment that leads to thoughtful action as we help them examine their interests, goals and passions so that they can make a match with appropriate post-secondary institutions. We hope that each student who graduates from CPA will matriculate to a post-secondary experience that is an optimal match for their personality and interests and will be a place where they can develop academically, socially and spiritually into a young adult equipped to do God’s work in the world.
A primary component of our work is fostering student independence. We work to empower students to take the reigns of their college search and application process in preparation for the large amount of independence that college will bring.
In our work we partner regularly with Daniel Moore (High School Counselor), (Academic Coordinator) and (Academic Dean).
