Charting For Success

Charting for Success (CFS) modules were developed to provide a streamlined, comprehensive approach to college and career information for the students served. The curriculum creates and models a college-going culture for the high schools students at Communities In Schools of Lake County partner schools.

Through lessons, activities and events, the manual addresses the key steps for future academic and career success: academic preparation, college/career exploration, college financing and financial literacy.

2) Increase the number of high school graduates ready for college and post-secondary success through a variety of college-access activities;
3) Help students transition to post-secondary education by teaching parents and students about the valuable link between high school and college success, providing information on college requirements and the preparation process, and exploring the financial aid options that make college more affordable.
