Be Prepared for Success in College

Caring, attentive and highly-skilled college and guidance counselors work closely with each student to ensure that he or she is well prepared, academically and socially, for success in high school and ultimately with the college admissions process. CB is the only local high school to provide students with dedicated grade-level counselors, a four-year comprehensive guidance program, and a wellness and prevention program to proactively address the many choices and challenges facing teens today.
