TIPS FROM OUR COUNSELORS:

Fre shm an~
Start planning now! Ninth grade classes do matter if you plan to attend community college, a 4-year university, join the military, or attend a trade school. You must earn a C or better in all your A - G courses to get into a 4-year college or university. Do your best the first time. Know where you stand in your classes at all times. Check your grades and stay on top of all class work and homework. 
 Sophom ore s~
Review your freshman year. How did you do? Did you earn a C or better in your courses? Check with your counselor. Are you taking the courses you need to apply to college? Stay on top of your classes and know where you stand at all times.
Juni ors~
Review your high school coursework and activity plans.Keep in mind what colleges and other post-secondary programs are looking for:

  • Are you taking challenging coursework? (A-G)
  • Do you have a strong GPA (grade point average)?
  • Are you involved in extracurricular activities such as sports, volunteer work, leadership, or other civic organizations?
  • Do you have a Social Security number? You will need it to apply to colleges/universities and for financial aid.

College-Bound Athletes!
If you are planning to play any sport at a Division I or II College, you must register with the NCAA Clearinghouse at the end of your Junior year. The Clearinghouse evaluates your academic record to determine if you are eligible to participate at a Division I or II college as a freshman student-athlete. To register, go online to www.eligibilitycenter.org. Select “Create an Account. Pay the $80 registration fee (fee waivers based on financial need are available in the Career Center).  Request an Official Transcript be sent to NCAA.  Request forms are available on the COHS website.  Return completed request form and $2 official transcript fee to the Student Store. 
    Seniors~
¨Pass those classes the first time! There may not be a second chance.

¨All your classes count for college, remember they can revoke your acceptance so be sure to stay on top of those grades.

¨Apply to Colleges and Universities on time.

¨Stay on top of your post-secondary plan ~ don’t rely on anyone but yourself!

¨Listen to the bulletin, Wolfpack TV, and website news- all information for College and University visits, Financial Aid, Scholarships, Military and much more will be posted on the website.

¨If you don’t know, see your counselor. Don’t be left behind!

WOLFPACK DISTINCTIONS:

A number of programs on campus lead to special recognition during the graduation ceremony. COHS has several Academy/ Pathway programs – Culinary Arts, Architectural Design and Engineering and Digital Communications. Academy and Pathway students must complete the required courses for each program; the final course includes a Capstone project which reflects the industry standards for that particular Academy or Pathway.

In addition, Cosumnes Oaks High School offers two specialized programs Visual and Performing Arts and the Advanced Placement (AP) Diploma Program students are required to complete at least five (5) courses linked to those programs in order to receive special recognition.

The elite ALPHA Award recipients are selected by the staff. This award recognizes seniors who best exemplify the core values of COHS: prepared scholars, accomplished communicators, lifelong learners, and knowledgeable, global citizens. Additional acknowledgements are presented to AVID, Future Business Leaders of America, California Scholarship Federation, Leadership, Link Crew, and National Honor Society students who complete their respective programs.
