Maryville Christian School places a high value on counseling our high school students through the academic and college/career planning process. We partner with parents in guiding young people through the exciting discovery of God's design and their "fit" in the Kingdom, so that they can live out their unique calling in an increasingly complex world. 

The Guidance Office provides academic direction for students as they strive to realize their maximum academic and personal potential in MCS's college preparatory curriculum. We work with them on college selection and career exploration in planning for life beyond high school. We also advise and support them in the quest for scholarships and financial aid as they take the next step in their educational journey. 

Each aspect of guidance, whether academic, social, or personal, is biblically focused and carried out through trained, caring professionals. Please feel free to contact us regarding the specifics of our services. Thank you for your interest in Maryville Christian School!
