Welcome to the Office of College Counseling


The Whitefield Academy College Counseling office has developed a comprehensive and highly-individualized program centered on the core belief that God has gifted each student with certain interests, talents, and passions, and that He has a unique plan and purpose for his or her life. As counselors and advisors, we come alongside our students to help them navigate all aspects of the college search process, with the ultimate goal of helping each student find a college or university where he or she will flourish.

The College Counseling program begins in the freshman year, with developmentally-appropriate guidance progressing through the senior year. Highlights of the program include:

  • Seminars for freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors
  • Extensive Common Application seminar for seniors
