CREATE A FOUR-YEAR HIGH SCHOOL PLAN
Here is a list of all the information the class of 2024 will need in planning their time at CHS! Counselors will present this information to students during World History classes the first few months of the school year. A video will also be posted online for any students to reference and for parents to watch as well. Contact a counselor with any questions or to schedule a meeting!
It may seem early to start getting ready for college, but it really isn't. There's much to do to help prepare for post-high-school opportunities, so it's important that you and your student begin planning now!
START THINKING ABOUT CAREERS
Encourage your student to to develop a tentative career goal. It will probably change, but at least he or she has something to work toward. Setting goals is a critical part of your student's success.
- Help your student to identify interests by encouraging him or her to talk with family members and other adults about their careers to get ideas about fields your student may want to pursue.
- At CHS, your student will be taking a personality assessment on Naviance to help identify interests.
- Consider summer internships or enrichment programs as another means to identify interests, likes and dislikes. Experiences in the workplace can help your student assess strengths and weaknesses and even his or her learning style.
GET INVOLVED! EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES
Students are encouraged to actively take part in a sport, school club, music or drama group or community volunteer activity.
