Upon enrollment at CBHS, students are assigned a primary counselor who is available for academic, personal, and career counseling. CBHS counselors are partners in student achievement and meet regularly with students to assess and monitor academic progress. Counselors are also available to support students in addressing personal, social-emotional issues, or anything that affects the student and his ability to achieve to his fullest potential. Counselors often use a collaborative approach involving the student, his parents, faculty, and at times professionals in the community, to promote his learning and development. Students may be referred by teachers and parents, or a student may self-refer by requesting an appointment via email or by filing out a request for appointment in the CBHS Counseling Center
Teachers... The First Resource
Teachers are available before and after school for students seeking individual assistance. Students are encouraged to see their teachers before their need for help becomes urgent. Students may contact their counselors for advice about the type of academic assistance that would be most beneficial.
The Peer Tutoring Program is designed primarily for students who are having difficulty mastering a subject. Students may request a Peer Tutor by completing a "Peer Tutor Request Form" available in the Counseling Center. Shortly after the request is submitted, Br. Roman will match the student with another student who is proficient in the subject. Students and their tutors meet with Brother Roman and together agree upon a date, time and place for the tutoring sessions.
October Test Day
During October the following tests are administered to the grade levels noted. The date of Test Day is determined by the national date for the PSAT/NMSQT. Students are automatically registered for these tests and pay no extra fees. There are no make-ups for absentees.
College Admission & AP Exams
Colleges and universities accept either the ACT or SAT Reasoning test in reviewing applications for admission. It is recommended that students take the ACT and/or the SAT during winter or spring of junior year. They may also decide to take the tests again during senior year. The student's score report is mailed to his home, and CBHS also receives a copy. It is the student's responsibility to send his ACT and SAT scores to colleges. Students are encouraged to consult with their counselor to determine which test(s) to take. Registration materials are available in the Counseling Center.
