College Counseling

From the day a scholar enters CCSMS at any grade level, they are beginning an academic journey that will prepare them for college.  We say we have a “college-going” mentality at CCSMS, and we apply that approach to all scholar activities as they progress through the grades.  The school’s STEM driven program is one that colleges nationwide respect. Our graduates have received acceptances to over 120 colleges in 20 states and the District of Columbia. Notable colleges include MIT, Stanford, and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Our class of 2018 scholars collectively received 6 Palmetto Scholarships ($6700 annually), 14 LIFE Scholarships ($5,000 annually), and 23 HOPE Scholarships ($2600 annually).
