Summer Work for 2020-21 AP Classes


Class of 2020

Hello Class of 2020 Graduates,

A lot of things are uncertain this summer, but one thing is for sure: it’s still important for you to have a postsecondary plan and enroll in a college or skilled trade program this fall. We want to help you. This summer, there will be a counselor available to send you reminders and help you with any trouble or questions that you have as you take the final steps toward postsecondary education this summer.

· Do you need help researching programs/colleges/careers?

· Do you need help completing applications?

· Do you need help with the financial aid process? Or institutional documentation submission?

· Are you a parent that needs support with your college-bound student(s)?

· Are you a parent interested in going to college yourself?

No matter your journey, we are here to support you!

If you are interested in trade/vocational school, military, certification programs, community colleges, four-year institutions or would like guidance in identifying the next steps, sign up for our summer advising program here. We will provide one-on-one advising, workshops, speakers, organization/university spotlights, and so much more to help you on your journey. Stephanie Pitcher, a counselor from Chippewa Valley High School is our Summer Melt Counselor for Macomb County. We have also attached some more information about supports available to you.

ALL SERVICES ARE FREE! Sign up here.

Best wishes,

Your CVHS High school counselor

Class of 2023

Congrats! You finished your first year of high school during historical times!


Summer is here, and yes you need a break! However, research suggests letting months go by without engaging the brain puts student’s unnecessarily behind come fall. Take advantage of summer to explore & expand your mind, all while having fun! Consider:


  • Find a job – with the virus you may need to be creative! Neighborhood yard work? Dog Walking?
  • Take a class online– consider looking at classes Macomb Community College or other college/universities offer high school students over the summer. www.macomb.edu
  • College Visits – Summer is a great time to visit college campuses (websites!) Many are giving virtual tours.
  • Career Exploration - revisit your career cruising assessments or check out the above mentioned virtual career summer camps at https://www.nepris.com/home/v4
  • Read! – Keep your brain alert by reading something of interest – magazines, newspapers, websites, novels, even comics or teen romance - all have their benefits.
  • Visit Khanacademy.org – Practice academic areas of weakness to strengthen over the summer and/or set up an account linking Khan Academy to your PSAT for free test prep!
  • Get Creative! Consider trying something new, maybe something you’ve wanted to try but didn’t have the time – write poetry, song lyrics, begin painting, drawing or photography, try writing a short story or comic strip, start a book club, start your own business, learn to fix cars – whatever!


Remember, colleges often look to see what else you’ve been involved in during your high school career, and some scholarships require outside academic involvement. Most importantly, have fun! Take time to relax, stay in touch with family & friends, and enjoy the break – but treat summer as an opportunity, not as a time to check out!


On behalf of everyone at the 9th Grade Center – We wish the entire Class of 2023 a Happy, Healthy Summer and a Bright Future as you transition to the main building next year!

Mrs. Frohock, Mrs. Wall & Mrs. Given ~ 9th Grade Center Counselors
