College & Career Counseling
Lancaster County Christian School offers college and career counseling to all high school students. Mrs. Maria Taormina, college and career counselor, develops a personal relationship with each student. She works with each one to develop goals for high school and plans for post-high school careers. Mrs. Taormina begins her year by meeting with every senior in order to ensure that transition goals are being met, that college application deadlines are being kept, and that students are well-prepared for graduation and beyond.
Mrs. Taormina next turns her attention to the juniors. The junior year is when students begin to visit colleges, take college entrance exams, and start to solidify their future goals. The PSAT is offered here at LCCS for all sophomores and juniors interested in looking at college. Student transcripts are carefully reviewed to ensure that all students are on a clear path to completing their graduation requirements.
Sophomores and freshmen also benefit from a visit with Mrs. Taormina. They take the PLAN test to see how their interests and abilities match up with future careers. They choose their high school courses based upon a detailed four-year plan that provides for individual differences, interests, and career goals.
Mrs. Taormina has developed solid working relationships with admissions counselors from many colleges where LCCS alumni attend. She loves to guide students during these years so that they can make a smooth and successful transition from high school to college or career. The College and Career Office is a place where students dream big and learn to fly high, fully prepared for their futures.
