The Guidance Office recognizes that each student at NorthStar Academy has been given gifts and abilities to be used to glorify the Lord.

It is our goal to provide individualized support and direction to students as they gain a clearer understanding of their personal, academic, and spiritual goals. In partnership with parents, students, and NSA teachers, the Guidance Office will walk with students through their coursework, providing proactive academic counseling to prepare students with the skills needed to successfully navigate their post-secondary studies and/or the workforce.
