College & Academic Advising

Cypress Christian School College and Academic Advising provides a personalized, student-centered approach which informs and supports students and their families.

Cypress Christian School students are challenged daily in their core classes and electives. The base curriculum enhances the student’s exposure to STEM in core classes that every student takes such as Algebra I, Algebra II, geometry, pre-calculus, biology and more. In addition to the core classes, each student will be exposed to, there is opportunity to take their desires and passions to the next level with STEM electives in mathematics, science, engineering and computer science.

ADVISORS

Course Selection

Each spring, the advising office meets individually with students and parents to review their four-year degree plans, course options for the next school year and next steps towards their goals after graduation. These annual meetings allow students’ plans to grow and change with them as they develop into the person God is calling them to be. 

Career Exploration

Students complete the YouScience Aptitude Assessment to identify their talents and receive guidance about possible career pathways. Career-focused electives, like engineering and health sciences, offer students the opportunity to explore these interests further.

College Search and Application

The college search begins in ninth grade, and throughout high school, students will go on field trips to tour universities, visit with college representatives on campus, attend college fairs and participate in Lunch & Learns to prepare their application materials. At every stage, students are encouraged to meet individually with the advising office to help them find the university that is the right fit for them.

SAT/ACT Info

In ninth grade, students take the PSAT9 to become familiar with the test structure and provide a baseline for future testing. In 10th grade, students take the PSAT/NMSQT as a practice run for the following year. In 11th grade, students take the PSAT/NMSQT for consideration for the National Merit Scholarship Program. All of these assessments help students prepare for the SAT, which will be used in the college admission process.

The ACT and SAT are both offered to juniors and seniors on campus each fall and spring. Students can register to take the test in a familiar environment, with only their classmates, administered by CCS faculty.

College RepS

Each spring, the advising office meets individually with students and parents to review their four-year degree plans, course options for the next school year and next steps towards their goals after graduation. These annual meetings allow students’ plans to grow and change with them as they develop into the person God is calling them to be.
