Create a Parchment account

To Order 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)

Scholarships

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.
