Guidance

Class of 2019 College Decisions

Charting A Path

Our Guidance Department works diligently with all Explorers to prepare them for graduation and beyond.
 
They provide SAT and ACT guidance, college exploration, a College Boot Camp, and career planning. Throughout their time at Christopher Columbus High School, students will learn about the transition into high school, the importance of course rigor, and how to get involved in high school. Students take the PSAT in freshman, sophomore, and junior year; they take the PreACT in freshman and sophomore year, and the ACT in junior year. Juniors and Seniors focus heavily on the college search and application process, financial aid, and finding scholarships for their post-secondary education with the assistance of their College Counselors. The Guidance Department hosts numerous admissions representatives from colleges and universities across the country to provide Explorers the opportunity to meet with a school they may be interested in attending. They also host a yearly College Fair inclusive of over 120 colleges and universities across the world.
 
Counselors also host evening events for parents covering a wide range of topics in the ever-changing world of the adolescent mind including navigating the waters of the teenage years, succeeding in high school, and the college admissions process. Whether our students need assistance with their college search, preparing for an interview or deciding what college or university to ultimately attend, the Columbus Guidance Department is here to help.
