College Planning

College and university admission is an important priority for the majority of Cheyenne Mountain High School students.  To meet this need, the college counseling staff provides a variety of services and resources.

College visits at Cheyenne Mountain High School and College Fairs in Colorado Springs: Students are encouraged to meet over 100 representatives who visit the campus annually.  Students sign up to attend these campus visits by logging on to their Family Connection accounts.  Cheyenne Mountain students are invited to attend several locally held college fairs throughout the school year.  Students can learn about these college fairs by visiting the College Services web page and logging into their Family Connection accounts.

Family Connection is a web-based college planning service available to all students at Cheyenne Mountain High School.  Students and their parents may log on to the student’s Family Connection account from any computer with Internet access.  Family Connection is an information tool that allows students to sign up for college visits at Cheyenne Mountain High School, perform college searches, research college matches, build a resume of activities and awards, take a career interest inventory, research careers, link to helpful college planning websites, and stay informed about the college planning process at Cheyenne Mountain High School.  Helpful college planning websites are posted on the College Services web page and the student’s Family Connection account.

Students and parents are encouraged to begin the college search process early.  It is not just an activity for the senior year.  Good planning leads to good decision making throughout the high school years.

Please see the attached file regarding financial aid. This presentation was put together by the National Association for College Admission Counseling and I think it's an excellent resource for an overview on the subject. CMHS students and families, please feel free to contact me if you have questions or would like to schedule a meeting.
