College Advisement

Whittier Christian High School prides itself in its dynamic academic counseling department.

Our college advisors work alongside students to help them discover and use their God-given talents to reach educational and career success. Advisors meet with every student, every semester. This individual attention from 9th through 12th grade ensures that students are well informed about the college application process and adequately prepared for the transition to college or vocational school. 

In addition, we provide you and your family with the tools you need to assist in making decisions for the next step. Along your high school journey, we offer several college planning and spiritual growth tools, including specially created college/career days, detailed information nights on SAT and ACT tests, and a personalized online portal called Family Connection. Through Family Connection, parents and students can organize college planning. Together, they discover unique aspects of the student’s identity and career interests correlating with specific colleges and their majors. Our college advisors personally care about your student and desire to see them discover God’s calling for their future.

Quick Fact: The Class of 2012 received over 5 million in university scholarships.
