Applying to College

Hello CHAMPS Family and Visitors! 


Welcome -- Please join me in taking a good look at CHAMPS' Countdown To College!  My name is Yasmin Shepperd, and I’m CHAMPS’ Director of College Counseling.  Kazeem Tijani, College Counselor, and I are very happy to guide CHAMPS juniors and seniors through the college choice and application process. 


CHAMPS has graduated its sixth senior class in June, and we’re proud to report that our school has indeed already developed into a notably strong and enthusiastic college-going community of students with approximately 70% attending four-year private and public institutions throughout the nation of all types and sizes -- and nearly 30% of our grads attending community colleges.  For such a young charter school, we think you'll probably agree that CHAMPS' collective college-going outcome is exciting and impressive.  Please see the attached pdf list (on the right-hand side of this page) of all four-year colleges and universities where our grads have been accepted.  


Following our college acceptance list on this page, please find and peruse a number of college applications-related handouts, as well as necessary school-generated forms for current seniors who are applying to four-year colleges.  




**Please note that we meet with seniors and their families throughout the year by appointment, and with juniors and their folks during the second semester (early March).  Freshman and sophomore students will be given college-concerned information during specifically announced times during the year, and they are college-counseled by their assigned school counselors up to February/March of their 11th-grade year; and freshman/sophomore parents/guardians will be invited to grade-specific evening presentations to be announced as they occur.  


Seniors, all of the handouts you'll need are posted on this website as well as in your Naviance/Family Connection account.  


If you have any college-related questions, please contact me via email at


We are looking forward to meeting you as you complete your life-changing journey from high school to college. We're truly thrilled to be a part of it and hope it will be a joyous one for you!



Yasmin Shepperd,

Director of College Counseling
