What is a school counselor?

School counselors create comprehensive school counseling programs that focus on student outcomes, teach student competencies and are delivered with identified professional competencies. The Counseling & Career Center at CCHS provides support services for the entire school community.

CCHS counselors assist students with their academic, social, and personal needs by monitoring student progress to ensure students meet graduation requirements. This includes direct student services, individual student planning, responsive services, and indirect student services.They refer students, when appropriate, to other services in the DCSD such as special education, psychological services, social services, homebound instruction, etc. when necessary.

The GSU Dual Enrollment Office will process prospective Dual Enrollment students without standardized test scores. Students must have a 3.0 GPA, calculated by GSU (this applies to both Atlanta and Perimeter students).  Please note, this option will only be extended to students who did not have the opportunity to the ACT/SAT/ACCUPLACER due to COVID-19. Below are a few answers to common concerns/questions:

  1. What if my student currently has SAT/ACCUPLACER/ACT scores on file with GSU but does not met the minimum requirements; will they be admitted?

Answer: No, students with test scores already on file with GSU will be evaluated based on SAT/ACT/ACCUPLACER and HS GPA.

  1. My student was denied due to low test scores. Can they be considered?

Answer: Unfortunately, no. Students who were already denied will not be re-evaluated. This exception is extended only to students who did not have the opportunity to test.

  1. Will there be any restrictions to students registering for MATH 1111: College Algebra, ENGL 1101: English Composition and other courses since there’s no SAT/ACT/ACCUPLACER scores on file?

Answer: Yes, all Dual Enrollment students should be college ready. The admission office will evaluate their HS transcript and grades in core classes. Students must meet an average GPA thresholds to register for all college level courses.

  1. Although GSU will be admitting without standardized test scores, should a Dual Enrollment student still take the SAT/ACT/ACCUPLACER?

Answer: Absolutely! Students may receive registration restrictions/errors if they do not meet the GPA threshold on core classes. Students can still register for standardized test; even after being admitted.

Testing:
Although the students without test scores will be evaluated by the Admission Department for the Summer and Fall 2020 semester, students should still register for the ACT/SAT/ACCUPLACER. Students who plan on enrolling at the Perimeter campus may take the ACCUPLACER virtually through Examity. Students must meet Examity’s computer requirements.
