For other schools, you will want to find the prospective student tabs on their individual website.
Assistance with college applications is available in the counseling department.

If you are wanting to send a transcript to a college or university, we ask that you please create a Parchment account. We utilize this service to send free secure transcripts.
If you are needing a copy of a transcript for a scholarship, car insurance, or for filling out applications, Ms. Aspen in the career center can print one out for you (so it doesn’t cost you money on Parchment)

Ms. Aspen in the career center is your CHS contact for scholarships.
She maintains a local scholarship list
There is also a good list of National Scholarship Search programs
The best advice is apply, apply, apply! We have many local scholarships that little to no students apply for. Even the small ones can add up. Don’t just go for the big full-ride ones.
