College Counseling


“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, “plans to give you hope and a future”. Jeremiah 29:11

NCA is committed to supporting our students in the college decision process. Students choose colleges for a variety of reasons: academic reputation, location, money, majors available, etc. We want to encourage our students to evaluate what type of school environment will be the best fit for them. Our college planning office is here to assist students with all aspects of college planning including test taking, career planning, college options, financial aid, and applications.

Please contact me with any questions you might have.
