College & Career Counseling

Equipping students for a successful future

King’s High School approaches college and career advising from a "best fit" view that keeps our student’s academic, social, emotional, and spiritual needs a priority.

King’s College and Career Counseling program is thoughtfully designed to reduce anxiety surrounding college applications by ensuring that families have the necessary tools, information, and support to successfully plan and prepare for the college admission process. We provide personalized advising that focuses on self-reflection, prayer, and the discovery of each student’s unique God-given abilities.

King’s High School approaches college and career advising from a “best fit” view that keeps our student’s academic, social, emotional, and spiritual needs a priority. Through guided grade-level college planning, parent education opportunities, and individual advising meetings, college counseling is designed to partner with the family and equip the student to choose the college option that will best prepare him or her to be the person God has uniquely designed and be a place where they will continue to grow, thrive, and be challenged.

For more information about our College and Career Counseling, please contact our College and Career Counselor, Diana Fairchild at dfairchild@kingsschools.org.
