Our guidance team works closely with students and families to find schools or programs that perfectly match students’ distinctive academic and personal needs, talents, and preferences.

Our aim is not just to guide them as learners, but to ignite within them a sense of purpose and passion, leading them towards opportunities that feel just right for them.

A Four-Year Journey

Churchill offers a comprehensive four-year guidance program to help students gain a deeper understanding of their learning style and how it shapes their academic future. The college counseling team is an integral part of school life, supporting students not just through the application process, but from the very first days of their 9th grade year.

The team fosters strong and personalized connections with each student, getting to know them on a deeper level. This approach ensures that every student receives tailored support that resonates with them throughout their time at Churchill. The journey toward post-high school opportunities formally begins for students in 11th grade, with weekly transition classes that continue through to 12th grade. Alongside these classes, students and families engage in a variety of activities, including individual meetings, family consultations, and interactive workshops aimed at involving parents and caregivers in their child's unfolding adventure.
