College & Career Planning

Career exploration and college planning begin in eighth grade when students take a career exploration course and complete an assessment to help determine their gifts. Local professionals also visit this class to talk about their occupation and vocational journey.

As students progress through middle school and high school, they have bi-yearly appointments with the guidance counselor to track their academic progress and discuss future college and career opportunities. During Winterim, students can work with the guidance counselor to design an individual internship experience that allows the student to more fully explore a particular career.

WSCA also administers the PSAT 8/9 and PSAT-NMSQT, helpful indicators of career and college readiness.

If a student is interested in attending college, he/she can attend the CSAGH College Fair, an evening with more than 30 Christian and secular colleges and universities represented. CSAGH also hosts financial aid information nights for parents and students.

WSCA School Temporary Closure Announcement due to COVID-19

WSCA School Closure Announcement

Out of an abundance of caution, West Shore Christian Academy is following other local school districts’ decision to close beginning Monday, March 16 through Friday, March 27, 2020. We will plan to resume school on Monday, March 30, 2020. It is important to note that, at this time, WSCA does not have any confirmed cases of COVID-19.

During this closure, we will be implementing a distant learning plan in an attempt to redeem instructional time so we can continue to fulfill state instructional hour requirements. As we communicated last night, next Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday (March 16-19) will be vacation days for the students as faculty and staff report for in-service to begin implementing our distant learning plan. More information will be sent via email early next week to explain student, teacher, and parent expectations for schoolwork during the closure.
