Guidance Counseling

The Counseling Staff at CKHS provides a variety of services to assist students with their high school and post high school academic planning, college applications, scholarship information, and any issues that may arise to support and ensure academic success.

Many helping professionals are available through the Counseling & Career Center including a drug/alcohol counselor, a school psychologist and school nurse, as well as professionals from the community who serve students within the building. Parents and students may confer with any school counselor for further information on services available.
