College & Career Counseling
College Counseling at King’s Way Christian High School serves the needs of each student by guiding them towards a Christian Higher Education. This process begins during their Freshman Year where our students are encouraged to dream and discover God’s calling for their lives through parent/student forums. This continues into their Junior and Senior years where they are challenged to discern and do God’s calling. Students meet regularly during their junior and senior years to discuss the college admissions process, including admissions requirements and entrance exams.
Our King’s Way families are also provided with parent/student college information nights designed to provide general information regarding the admissions process and financial planning for college. Additionally, Christian colleges and universities from across the country are invited each fall to meet with interested students regarding their offered programs. These events occur either virtually or in-person.
Christian Higher Education
“What is God’s will for my life?” For students who are considering college, you are in a unique position in your lives where this question begins to captivate your mind. Attending college provides many opportunities. It gives you the opportunity to build a network of people with similar and unique gifts as yours, meet new people of different backgrounds, and increase your knowledge of your potential career field.
However, ministry doesn’t always take place in a church. It could look like teaching in the classroom, leading a group of people in a business, engaging in the community, or working in the medical field. The highest ideal for an alumni of King’s Way is to be out in the world leading the way built on a strong Christian education. It matters who our students listen to every day in class, so the great value of a Christian education is that young aspiring minds and hearts are learning from godly men and women. Students at Christian colleges and universities are learning about life from their faculty and staff and peers who share a biblical worldview.
One of St. Augustine’s famous and beautiful prayers, “What Do I Love When I Love My God?” sheds light on the importance of a Christian higher education.
“It is not physical beauty, nor temporal glory, nor the brightness of light so dear to earthly eyes, nor the sweet melodies of all kinds of songs, nor the gentle odor of flowers or ointments or perfumes, nor manna, nor honey, nor limbs welcoming the embraces of the flesh. It is not these things I love when I love my God. Yet there is a light I love, and a food, and a kind of embrace when I love my God. A light, voice, odor, food, embrace of my innerness, where my soul is floodlit by light which space cannot contain, where there is sound that time cannot seize, where there is perfume which no breeze disperses, where there is a taste for food no amount of eating can satisfy, where there is a bond of union that no satiety can part. That is what I love, when I love my God.”
