The College and Career Resource Center (CCRC) is a service of the CHS Counseling Department that complements the work of counselors by assisting students and parents with the college search and career decision making process. CCRC Staff are available on Gold days to meet with students and parents. Students in all grade levels can make an appointment by completing an appointment request form in the Counseling Office. Parents may request appointments by sending an email using the contact information in our STAFF section above.
