Guidance and Counseling

Welcome to the Banner Christian School’s College Guidance Center. High school is an exciting time for our students as they grow and mature into the young people God would have them to be and seek God’s will for their lives. Guiding students in this process is an immense privilege. Our school verse, Jeremiah 29:11, states, “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.“ God has a plan for each student and my desire is to mentor, model, and help direct our students as they begin to plan their future academic and professional careers. My purpose as a college guidance counselor is to help, support, and encourage our students so that they can begin to realize and fulfill God’s purposes for them.

Some of the specific services the College Guidance Center offers are: course scheduling, Honors/AP Placement, college recommendations, transcript requests, scholarship opportunities, college admission publications, college fair opportunities, leadership/community service opportunities, and resume consulting.

As you begin considering your future goals, if you would like to schedule a meeting, please feel free to contact me at

In Him,

Carla Irwin
Director of Guidance
