College & Career
The College & Career Center introduces students to college and career opportunities and helps prepare them for success in college and on into adulthood. Our focus is to raise awareness at each grade level.
Freshmen work take the PSAT 8/9 as their first step towards college readiness. This exam provides a base PSAT score for them to build upon throughout high school.
CCHS introduces the PSAT/NMSQT to all Sophomores. Results from this exam give students access to a detailed score report, AP Potential, and other valuable information through College Board.
An SAT Prep Course is available twice a year for students to prepare for the College Board exam. Students also take the PSAT and are required to attend a college fair. At the end of 11th grade, students complete a college planning project which includes the following: their top five schools, resume, personal essay, common application and more.
Assistance is available for 12th grade students as they complete their applications, recommendations, scholarships and financial aid information. The seniors also participate in a Senior Summit in the fall to help with their college/career transition.
Opportunities for all Students
Each fall, CCHS hosts “College Day,” where approximately 25 Christian colleges visit our campus. Throughout the school year, many additional college admissions representatives visit CCHS for small group setting presentations. We also offer a college financial planning workshop twice a year as a partnership with Thrivent Financial.
