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. Hasina Mohammad, College Counselor, and I are very happy to guide CHAMPS students through the college choice and application process**.
CHAMPS has graduated its ninth senior class in June, and we’re proud to report that our school has developed into a notably strong and enthusiastic college-going community of students with approximately 65% attending four-year private and public institutions throughout the nation of all types and sizes -- and nearly 35% of our grads attending community colleges. 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 READ THE FOLLOWING
~Lunchtime drop-in is available for all grade levels to discuss any college related issues. Mrs. Shepperd (Room 413) works with students who have last names beginning with A-K and Ms. Mohammad (Room 412) services students who have last names beginning with L-Z.
~Freshman and sophomore students will be given college-concerned information in a classroom setting during the year.
~During the second semester of junior year, an evening presentation (Countdown to College) will be held for students and their parents/guardians to discuss what to expect in the upcoming college process, followed by an individual family appointment (beginning in mid-February), and a field trip for the entire class to the NACAC College Fair.
~Our focus is on seniors, so begin the year with "All About the Class of" for seniors and their parents/guardians. Individual appointments begin immediately after the large group presentation, along with on-campus college rep visits, application workshops, financial aid workshops and any additional individual appointments as needed.
