High school is the final transition into adulthood and the world of work as students begin separating from parents and exploring and defining their independence. They must deal with academic pressures as they face high-stakes testing, the challenges of college admissions, the scholarship and financial aid application process, and entrance into a competitive job market.
As Christians, we take comfort in the fact that our God is sovereign and orchestrates our steps. In this context, our guidance department focuses on the discovery of students' callings and how they may serve God in the vocation of their choosing. Throughout their high school years, Zion students are given the tools to evaluate their aptitude and interest in a variety of fields. Equipped with this knowledge, students and parents are able to make informed decisions regarding college and vocation.
Throughout their high school years, students will meet with an academic adviser for assistance in such areas as program planning, test interpretation, career information, college applications, and job information.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. (Jeremiah 29:11)
