Centennial College Week 2015!!

During the week of October 24-31, Centennial hosted our 5th Annual College Week. The goal of our College Week is to further promote the college going culture in our school by offering students opportunities to learn more about all aspects of post-secondary education. Here is what you need to know about this year’s College Week:

Myth: College week is not only for seniors.

Fact: Some events will be more geared for students in a particular grade, but nearly all activities and events are open to students/parents in all grades.

 

Myth: College Week is only for students who are planning to attend a 4 year college/university.

Fact: College Week is designed to reach ALL students by exposing them to a variety of post-secondary possibilities and engaging them to be actively thinking about their future.

 

Myth: College week is only for students.

Fact: Several College Week events are open to both students and parents.

 

Over the course of the week we will be having several breakout sessions, activities and events which are all related to students and parents planning for continued education beyond high school. To preview the events and activities which we have planned for the week, visit the 2015 College Week Event Schedule-FINAL.

How do students participate?

 

Can parents participate?

We strongly encourage students and parents to take advantage of these great workshops and information sessions. We want students to gain exposure to new possibilities, gain knowledge which will help them identify the best post-secondary fit for them and to be actively engaged in thinking about their future.

 

College Week Event: Deciding between the SAT or ACT?

Here is your chance to take a combo (mirroring the New SAT) practice test sponsored by Kaplan Test Prep. This is a test created by Kaplan to expose students to both the SAT and ACT. It’s a measurement tool that can help you determine if you would score higher on one test or the other.

CHS School Counseling Program Receives National Recognition Again

In 2013 the counseling program at Centennial High School was again recognized by the American School Counselor Association as meeting the criteria to be named a Recognized ASCA National Model counseling program. The RAMP designation recognizes schools that are committed to delivering a comprehensive, data-driven school counseling program and an exemplary educational environment. Centennial High School was honored for their exemplary commitment and dedication to serving all students and demonstrating how effective school counseling programs can make a difference in students’ lives. This is the second time Centennial’s counseling program has earned this honorable designation.

Brd Meeting Recog 3-2013

The ASCA National Model adopted by Centennial supports the school’s overall mission by promoting academic achievement, career planning and personal/social development and serves as a framework to guide in designing, developing, implementing and evaluating a comprehensive, developmental and systematic school counseling program.
