Members of the Class of 2020 from across the Commonwealth of Virginia will be applying to colleges during the week of November 18-22, 2019. We hope you join them! Remember that enrollment at a college begins with just one step: the completion of an application.
Here at CHS, we will host the following events:
- Monday, November 18: College Application Drive: Seniors- are you still working on your college applications? Do you need to start the process? Come see Mrs. Hummer and Ms. Taylor on Monday of VCAW to get started. Ms. Taylor can help students with four-year applications while Mrs. Hummer can assist with Germanna and other community colleges. Some applications may only take ten minutes! Sign up here: https://forms.gle/QBZND1oCALbctJKS9
- Tuesday, November 19: Longwood On-Site Admissions: On-site admissions is an excellent way to learn an admissions decision quickly. Longwood’s admissions counselor will visit CHS to review transcripts and test scores of those who would like to participate. At the end of the visit, students will learn their admissions status.
