Oh, the Places They Are Going!

Our students benefit from personalized college counseling starting in 9th grade.

The College Counseling Program at LSA is a comprehensive and structured advising program that aims to provide students and their parents with up-to-date information, supportive counseling, and applicable resources.

The college admissions process is a partnership venture that brings students, parents, and the counselors together for the support and encouragement of each student. Throughout the process, the overriding goal of the college counseling office is to help individual students look within themselves to understand who they are beyond the classroom and help them find the "right fit" for an appropriate post-high school experience.

Our program includes the following:

  • Throughout the school year, LSA's college counselors host advisor visits, seminars, and parent meetings, all designed to give every student and family the information needed to maximize the high school academic experience and navigate the college admission and financial aid process.
  • naviance logoEvery student is introduced to Naviance Family Connection, a comprehensive website that students and their parents can use to help in making plans about courses, colleges, and careers. Family Connection is linked with Naviance Succeed™, a service that the college counselors use to track and analyze data about college and career plans, providing up-to-date information that’s specific to our school.
  • We regularly host college admissions representatives on campus during the school year, often times during the lunch period, to meet with interested students.


By  graduation, our students are equipped to succeed not only in college, but in whatever post-high school opportunities they pursue. We have graduates who go into public ministry serving around the world. Other graduates go into the business world, creating their own companies, or serving as doctors, lawyers, businessmen and women, and first responders, who serve their communities both in vocation and in their churches. Some of our graduates receive appointments to military academies, and are still in active duty today, serving as officers.
