The counselors at CHHS work with students, parents, teachers, and others to provide the support you need to succeed in high school and prepare for the future. Our counselors can be seen working with individual students, classrooms, or specific groups of students. Topics may include preparing for college/career interests, figuring out high school, or coping skills to help with personal issues.
Advisement is an exciting time for the counseling department as parents and students meet individually with an advisor to discuss future goals and plans. A plan is reviewed each year in the spring. We look forward to seeing each parent come to our school for advisement.
