High-achieving 9th and 10th graders: the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics (NCSSM) is an unparalleled opportunity for academic and personal growth, particularly for students pursuing Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education. There will be a representative from NCSSM at CHS on Thurs. 10/17 to meet with interested students during lunch in the bandroom. You apply during your 10th grade year, but we invite 9th graders to hear about the opportunity, too. See Mr. Harkey with any questions beforehand.
12th graders: October is Countdown to College Month in North Carolina. CHS will host a College Application Week during the week of 10/21. During that week, you can sign up to receive 1-on-1 assistance in the Media Center for a number of things regarding college admissions: creating your CFNC account and completing the NC Residency Determination for in-state tuition, creating your CommonApp account and/or linking it to your Naviance account, establishing your FSA ID so that you can begin your FAFSA, applying to colleges, searching for scholarships, simply talking about what your options are for after graduation, and more. You can make an appointment for that week at http://bit.ly/2khTZ5W, or lunches will have walk-in availability. During this week only, certain 4-yr NC colleges will be waiving application fees for all applicants (students eligible for fee waivers can use those throughout the year) - see http://bit.ly/C2Cfreeapps to view which schools.
