College and Career Guidance at DC
Our College Guidance and Career Program: The goal of the College Counseling Department for Denver Christian School is to work with students to find the best option for them in their post high school. Staff meet regularly with high school students to advise upon class selection, college choices, scholarship opportunities, and more.
High school students, especially those in 11th and 12th grade, will be offered guidance to understand the college admission process and to help them make informed decisions. Methods may include individual meetings with counselors, group meetings, networking with outside resources, college fairs and meetings with recruiters. The goal is met when students feel empowered to make the most appropriate and informative choice in their post high school plans whether that is college, university, trade school, military, etc. Students will graduate with a sense of ownership and excitement to begin to build the foundation for their future personal and academic goals.
Denver Christian High School students are the well-rounded, academically prepared, and inspiring young men and women sought after by leading colleges and universities.
