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.  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.  

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 or Ms. Mohammad 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 



~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.
