Are You the Parent of CHS Junior? Junior Parent (and Student!) Night, is Thursday,

Counseling Department, along with guest speaker Natalie Henderson from
Applerouth Tutoring Services, will present timely and important information to
Junior Parents and Students about preparing for postsecondary options—including
trends in college admissions, college searches and the college decision-making
process, SAT/ACT and test prep, important dates and reminders for Juniors, and
more! If you are a Junior Parent or Student, please plan attend this informative
Centennial Hosting 3rd Annual College Week! During the week of November 3-8, CHS will be promoting the college going culture in our school by offering students a variety of opportunities to learn about post-secondary education options. We will be having guest speakers presenting information on everything from college admissions, scholarship searches and SAT/ACT prep to military options, the NCAA and FAFSA. There will be several chances for students to participate and win a variety of prizes as well. Some events will focus on students in a particular grade, but most activities and events are open to students in all grades. Also, there are several events which parents will find informative and are welcome to attend as well (see the Parent Schedule of Events for more information).
On Thursday, November 6th we will have our 4th Georgia Apply to College event where every Centennial senior will be given the opportunity to apply to college during the school day. College admission officers, school counselors, and community volunteers will be on hand to assist students as they work on completing their college application. Last year we had 275 seniors participate in this event and helping our Class of 2014 reach a 92% college going rate. It is our goal to maintain and build upon that momentum this year.
We strongly encourage students to take advantage of these great workshops and information sessions so they can become exposed to new possibilities and actively thinking about their future. To review all of the events and activities planned for the week, see the 2014 College Week Schedule of Events and the College Week Event Preview.
