We in the counseling department strive to get as much post-high school planning information to you as we possibly can. With there being 325 of you, electronically is by far the easiest way for us to do so.
We reach out by social media (facebook, twitter), the CHS Website, and quarterly emails. Please follow us, bookmark our page, and give us an email you check often.
We are now going to show you some great resources you can use in Career Cruising. We will show you the scholarship selector, college compairson chart, as well as the different matchmaker options for those of you who dont know what you want to do yet.
Class of 2017, Congratulations! You have made it to the end of your high school career.

Then we ask if you could please complete the Senior Survey
Lastly, we want to make sure you know all the most up to date Graduation information.
You will get 8 tickets from Ms. Murfit and they will be required if graduation must be inside.
Graduation practice will be after 1st period on Thursday, June 21st in the Capital High Gym. It is mandatory if you plan to walk at Graduation
All fines must be paid to get your diploma, if you have not paid them by 1pm on Friday, your diploma will be pulled and you will receive a blank piece of paper at the ceremony.
Cap Decoration Guidelines
Congratulations to the Class of 2017! After the precedent set by previous graduating classes, you are able to decorate your caps at the commencement ceremony. Everything went well the past two years- no issues, and everyone complied. Therefore, we are willing to try it again! CHS staff and members of student council ask you and your family to read the guidelines found below.
There will be dedicated students and some faculty checking caps and observing these standards that have been crafted. In order to encourage high standards of student conduct and behavior, the principal or participating members of his staff will replace a student’s cap if it is in violation of the guidelines with a replacement so he/she may walk. If a student refuses or the cap decoration is blatantly in disregard of the Capital Code, this student places the future decoration of graduation caps in jeopardy. Many students from the Class of 2015 put a lot of time and effort into this opportunity. This is a chance no class has had before 2015, and we trust that you will follow the Capital Code and the guidelines. If you have any questions about any intended information/images that you feel might be questionable, be sure to talk to an administrator during school hours long before commencement exercises.
The Capital High Counseling Department strives to increase communication with parents and students. One of the ways we are able to get lots of information out is through our parent night presentations. We will provide links to them after we have presented so you can access the information. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s counselor.
