RE: Student Transcripts

Dear CMHS Parents,

Within a week of the conclusion of each semester Cheyenne Mountain student transcripts are updated to reflect the most recently completed semester coursework. Transcripts must be an accurate record of coursework each student takes while in high school, and they are to reflect grades earned, grade point averages, and class rank. Also, by Colorado law, transcripts must report each student's Colorado SAT scores completed during high school.

Each January, as part of the Counseling department's implementation of Individual Career and Academic Plans (ICAPS), Counselors review with students the high school graduation and state of Colorado college and university admissions requirements, and then ask students to be responsible for auditing their own transcripts.

Counselors would like to promote shared responsibility for the tracking of credits to meet requirements with parents and students. To enable this, you will find your student's transcript via the Parent Portal. Under your student's name, click on "Reports," then choose "Portal Transcript." If you are unable to access the Parent Portal, please email the help desk, which is at To assist you with auditing the transcript, the audit form can be found on our school website at:

Please take time to check the accuracy of grades and credits. Note that CMHS reports both an unweighted and a weighted grade point average. Only students who have completed Advanced Placement courses will notice a difference between the two.

Parents and students are responsible for researching college admissions requirements both in Colorado and nationally and college-bound athletes are responsible for understanding the scholarship eligibility requirements for NCAA athletics. Additional resources you may wish to help in evaluating your student's preparedness for college admissions and NCAA Eligibility can be found at:

Career Start /AVP (Area Vocational Program)

Career Start at Pikes Peak Community College provides occupational skill development and training for junior and senior high school students from all over the Pikes Peak region. School districts pay the cost of the program through a contractual agreement with Pikes Peak Community College. Students attending Career Start earn credit, which can be applied toward high school graduation. Under certain circumstances, and at the instructors' discretion, college credit can also be earned which may be applied to a post-secondary certificate or degree. In addition to teaching occupational and technical skills, Career Start strives to prepare students for the world of work by teaching the related academics and workplace basics that are essential for employment.

Classes follow a typical 5-days-per-week schedule and run two hours and forty five minutes daily. Students may enroll in either a morning or an afternoon session (limited programs). Many programs offer a second year program. College credit earned during enrollment in the Career Start relates directly to the post-secondary sequence of courses.

Instruction is provided in classrooms, laboratories, and in business and industry. In most programs, only Career Start students are enrolled; in others, they learn side-by-side with college students. All instructors in the Career Start are occupationally experienced and vocationally credentialed.
