College admissions, while challenging, can be a great experience. Searching for colleges, examining your interests, having discussions about your future with your parents can all be enlightening experiences. The counselors are here to help you as you work through this process. Let us know if you have any questions or need our assistance. Please see resources listed to the right of this page.
Visiting a college is a great way to get a feel for a campus and make sure it will be a good fit for you. To have a college visit during a school day excused, print the form to the right, fill it out, have it signed by the college when you visit and then give it to the attendance office when you return. Juniors and senior are allowed two excused college visits each year (these two days do not count against your exemptions). When scheduling your visit(s), keep in mind that only the day of the visit is excused, not any days used for travel.
Need your GPA or Rank?
Go to Naviance, click the “about me” tab, scroll down and click on “profile.” The first GPA is a student’s rank in class GPA. The second, the “weighted GPA,” is the official GPA and is the one listed on students’ transcripts. Students ranked in the top ten percent will have their rank listed here as well. Students not in the top ten percent will have a "0" for their rank. The GPA cutoff for the top 10% is Naviance on the left hand side under GPA/Rank pages link.

CHS is on a weighted 5.0 G.P.A scale which is the basis for determining a student's rank. We also provide a 4.0 GPA on students transcripts.
