PSAT Testing 

CCS encourages all college-bound high school students and students interested in taking AP classes to take the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT).  The PSAT is a pre-requisite for all students planning to take an AP class in high school. The test analyzes students' critical reading skills, math problem-solving skills, and writing skills. By taking the PSAT, juniors may qualify for scholarships, the National Merit program, and other recognition programs.  College-bound juniors are strongly encouraged to register. The test will be administered during the school day on Wednesday, October 14, 2020.  Students can access the Official Student Guide to the PSAT and review sample PSAT questions at http://www.collegeboard.org . The cost and registration fee is $25.00. Please submit the registration form as soon as possible but no later than June 11, 2020. Cash or checks will be collected after we return to school due to the Covid-19 closure. 

Credit Recovery

Those students who failed a class during the 2019-2020 school year, will get information on how to regain credit over the summer through our Educere Credit Recovery.  If you failed a class, and would like to take it again over the summer, please reach out to your counselor for more information.



  • There are a lot of Open Houses happening on college campuses  and virtually, all around us. Check with your counselor if you are interested in a school but don't know if they are doing virtual visits.
  • Make sure you are checking our Scholarship and Financial Aid Resources here on the website and on the board at school.  Ms. Whalen will also email students when new scholarships come in, so make sure to check your school email regularly.


The mission of our School Counseling Services is to counsel students toward achievement of individual goals, advocate for student needs, and support the pursuit of a college education through a comprehensive and proactive guidance program.

“Today’s young people are living in an exciting time, with an increasingly diverse and mobile society, new technologies, and expanding opportunities. To help ensure that they are prepared to become the next generation of parents, workers, leaders, and citizens, every student needs support, guidance, and opportunities during [childhood], a time of rapid growth and change. [Children] face unique and diverse challenges, both personally and developmentally that impact academic achievement.”
