College Counseling

As Christ-centered counselors, we will support a healthy academic environment and positive school culture by advocating for all students to be college and career ready.

One of the most exciting times in the life of a high school student is preparing for college. Harding Academy recognizes the importance of equipping students with the knowledge and tools they need to navigate through this ever changing and competitive process.

Our College Counseling program works with students in progressive stages throughout their high school career. Students are encouraged to learn more about their personalities and areas of interest,  ask questions, set goals, develop action plans, and envision possibilities. The College Office cultivates this process by offering individual and group meetings, visiting with college representatives, advising on SAT and ACT, and assisting with applications, essays, interviews, and scholarships. 

Harding Academy's school code (CEEB code) is 431 417.

Naviance/Family Connection
Harding Academy uses Family Connection to help families manage the college search and application process. Students and parents will receive passwords in the fall of their seventh grade year.
