College/Career Resource Center

Chanhassen and Chaska High Schools each have a College/Career Resource Center (CRC) for 9-12 grade students to EXPLORE, DREAM, and DISCOVER their future plans.  The CRC is a part of the Counseling Department and each CRC has a full-time staff that specifically assists and supports each student with career and college exploration, admissions process/applications, financial aid, and scholarships so that each student has their best chance for success whether it be a 4-year school, 2-year school, military, directly to the workforce, a GAP Year, or any other choice.  We meet with students and families as both are an important part of the decision making process.  It’s all about finding the best fit for each individual student!

College/Career Resource Center Counselor

College & Career Preparation

Each year students should take the classes that are exciting and challenging. Be involved in school or community activities you enjoy and consider working or volunteering to create a strong resume. Remember, it's important to not over do it. It is better to have experiences that are of value to you.
