College & Career

Welcome to the CCHS College & Career Center!

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
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.

Sophomores
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.

Juniors
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.

Seniors
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.
