Upper School Guidance Center

As our PRCA students prepare to graduate, we take intentional steps to ensure that they are equipped. Guidance services are designed to help students and their families identify their God-given giftings and aspirations to make informed, mature decisions regarding course selections and plans for after high school. We want students to make solid choices that best fit their academic, career and spiritual goals. PRCA graduates pursue college, gap year, career, and military opportunities. 
 
Applying to college or determining what comes after high school does not need to be overwhelming; it is a deeply personal process that can be a chance for educational self-reflection, ambitious goal-setting, and joyful discovery. At PRCA, we help to shape the leaders of tomorrow by introducing them to the best tools, giving them the most up-to-date information, and empowering them to manage the college or career selection process with confidence. Resources are available to each student to help navigate the journey. Our Guidance Team is not only experienced, but also deeply committed to the future success of our graduates.
