The most crucial decision you will make is your relationship with Jesus Christ. And the second is how you will live your life as a follower of Christ. We are commanded to love God with all of our mind, body, heart and soul. In order to fulfill this calling you will need to choose what college and training you will have after your kindergarten through twelfth grade education.
Because this next stage in life is so important, it requires careful planning and attention. Your decision will impact the choices that you have and the greater ability to minister in whatever career you have in your path.
Parent involvement is crucial in this process. Parents should be active participants in discovering and choosing a college. Ensuring your child is registered for the college board exams and visiting potential campuses is an important parent responsibility. Additionally, parents, you need to make certain that your child has been thorough in his/her search, reviewed admissions, researched financial aid options, and you need to offer support for this sometimes overwhelming phase of life. It is also important that you make certain that all tasks are completed and deadlines are met.
God has great plans for each of us so that we can live life in the fullest. Considering selecting a college is one of life’s most important decisions, It is our hope that this guide and our program will help our students in their preparations and decisions. We desire that all of our students will succeed.
