College and Career Counseling
Parents and Students,
Welcome to High Point Christian Academy! I am honored to work with you and your student as the College and Career Counselor. I know that we were each created with a plan and a purpose. God has given us gifts and talents to fulfill that plan and purpose. Helping students connect with postsecondary plans that fit the individual student is my goal and my desire.
HPCA utilizes student accounts on Naviance. This online career planning system provides career assessments, career and college research, and tools HPCA students use for the college application process.
