Chatt Tech's Diploma vs. Degree

We are so lucky to have Chattahoochee Technical College just a few miles down the street on South Cobb Drive in Marietta. CTC partners with CHS to help build a future for our graduates and also offer numerous classes for our Dual Enrollment students.

CTC is a perfect next-step for many of our graduates especially those who are still undecided of a future career, wanting to learn a skill and enter the career field quickly, and/or offer a college opportunity for those who do not have a stellar high school GPA. The tuition is affordable and many of the diploma programs cost little to no money due to the HOPE Career Grant.

Check out this flyer on their diploma vs. degree programs to learn a little more about CTC.

College Week is next week (24th-28th)!!! We have activities for grades 9-12. See the flyer below for all of the information!

Juniors!! Class of 2023

Junior Advisement Conferences will continue through March

Juniors: Prior to your conference, you need to complete the Junior Advisement Survey in Naviance. Go to "About Me", Surveys, Surveys not started, Junior Advisement Survey. This will help guide the conversation with you and your counselor about your plans and/or troubles creating a plan after high school graduation.

After your Junior Advisement conference, you will have 3 action items to complete. Check them out HERE.

Reach, Target & Safety Schools in your college list

In the junior conferences, you might hear the counselor refer to your list of colleges as a "reach, target or safety" school. What do these really mean and is it a good idea to have colleges that fit in each area? Check out this article explaining it all.

Juniors! Friendly reminder to finish strong in S2. As you apply to colleges in the fall of 2022, the last GPA update will be S2 of your Junior Year. You got this!

Sophomores!! Class of 2024

You have your PSAT score....What Now?

Have you retrieved your PSAT score from your CollegeBoard account yet? Do you know what they mean or where to take it from here? Check out this informative article that includes a short 2 min video of "What Now".

For sophomores, it's a good idea to go ahead and start that preparation program for the SAT now! Did you know that CollegeBoard partners with Khan Academy? Khan Academy gives students targeted SAT practice based on their PSAT performance. You can get personalized practice by linking the two accounts.

Here is a helpful checklist to be sure you are on track in preparing for college after graduation

Freshman!! Class of 2025

Congrats on finishing your first semester of high school!

You have finished your first semester of high school and officially have a high school transcript which includes a GPA.

Remember: To be promoted to the 10th grade in August, you have to earn a minimum of 5 credits that MUST include 1 English Literature credit, 1 Math credit and 1 Science credit by the end of your freshman year. If these are not earned, you will return as a 9th grader in August. While being retained does not mean that your graduation date (May 2025) will be later, it does mean that you have some catching up to do and need to re-focus on your academics. If you made a grade of 60-69, be sure to take advantage of Course Extension which occurs after the end of each semester. If you made below a 60, please look into summer school programs. Summer school info should be released around spring break. If you failed one or more of your academic courses from fall semester, please contact Ms. Foster to set up a meeting.
