Students are provided the CHS Academic Planning Guide in February or March to assist them in forecasting courses for the following year and provide information about credit requirements, college credit courses, graduation requirements, and more. The planning guide is linked below.

Counselors will present Four Year Course Planning Information to all freshmen students during freshmen English classes sometime within Trimester 1 & 2 of this school year.
Four Year Course Planning is important for the following reasons:
-To learn and plan for high school graduation requirements
-To learn and plan for college entry requirements
-To learn and plan for Honors Diploma and/or College Credit classes
-To meet State Of Oregon Graduation Requirements (as part of an Educational Plan & Profile)
Most of the information emphasized is from our CHS Academic Planning Guide
Students are shown the typical progression of academic classes through the following flowcharts:
English & Math Flowchart
Science & Social Studies Flowchart
The students course plan is started on a document called the MAPP (My Academic Plan & Profile), and then the MAPP is updated every year in high school, through 10th grade Future Focus Classes, and 11th and 12th grade Advisory Groups.
See the document here,

We encourage ALL students to fill out the Free Application for Federal Financial Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is the gateway for all need-based financial aid. Students work with their parents to fill in the FAFSA online. Based on the information you provide, students can be awarded any combination of grants, loans and work study. Filling the FAFSA does NOT obligate you to take any of the aid offered--you can always refuse, but you never know what you'll get unless you file the FAFSA!
Here is a link to the FAFSA website. You can take a look any time, but you can't file the FAFSA until January 1st of the year you plan to start college. FAFSA

Steps to Financial Aid
"Financial Aid" means any help with paying for college. Financial aid can be loans, grants, scholarship or work study programs. The best source of need-based financial aid is the Free Application for Federal Financial Aid (FAFSA). Below is some basic information about Financial Aid.
Here are a couple of videos on how to fill out the FAFSA. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VRyXfUStHO0
