Making The Right Choice

To be sufficiently prepared for college, students must begin the groundwork as freshmen by seeking counsel from the right professionals and planning a four-year schedule to successfully apply to the appropriate college or university. 

The Lipscomb Academy Academic and College Counseling Office shepherds students through the college admissions process giving them individualized support. Counselors empower students to assume responsibility for their post-secondary choices and strive to identify each student's trajectory, thereby, narrowing college choices to succinctly fit the individual. Through appropriate counseling and diligent work, academy students learn to articulate their aspirations and become attractive college applicants.

College Bound

We are so proud of all of our students and alumni. They have been admitted to some of the top schools in the nation. This is all due to their hard work and use of the resources we provide here at Lipscomb Academy.

My children have had a life changing experience at the academy. Their academic counselors are an image of patience and encouragement to ensure that every decision made is the best one for my child. Lipscomb Academy’s counselors are not only looking at academics, but rather is looking to develop them as a whole person.
