College Guidance

The College Guidance Program supports the philosophy and mission of South Shore Christian Academy by advising high school students and families throughout the college application process to better equip students for continued study beyond high school. The program accomplishes this by providing both general and individualized guidance plans, with a goal toward encouraging students to find the college or university that best prepares them to live out a life of faith that serves Christ and others in whatever career they choose.
