Counseling Center

The Counseling Center at the high school offers academic, personal, and college/career counseling services to all students of Kalamazoo Christian High School. High school is a time of intense change, adjustment, and decision-making, and our hope is that the Counseling Center is a resource students will use often as they go through KCHS.

KCHS also has several area youth pastors who volunteer as chaplains at the school on a regular basis.

The goals of the Counseling Center are:

  • To develop a relationship with students based on trust and confidentiality so that students can feel comfortable coming in with any number of issues.
  • To provide a sanctuary for students in difficult or high-stress times.  Crisis intervention and personal counseling are provided; referrals to private counseling services are also available if requested.
  • To encourage and provide support for students in academic danger.
  • To help students plan for their future, with academic planning as well as college and career planning.
  • To consult with teachers, staff, and parents to ensure the success of students.
  • To provide standardized testing services which assist students in evaluating their abilities and preparing for college.
