Guidance

The Pantego Christian Academy Guidance department assists our staff and students in fulfilling the mission of the school.  At the senior high level, students are guided in selecting their academic program to fulfill graduation requirements, prepare for and apply to colleges, and manage their academic coursework. The counseling staff meets with students and families and works in cooperation with the faculty and school leadership to plan effectively and prepare efficiently.
