College Success

  • The National Model for School Counseling Programs (American School Counselor Association) guides the school counseling program at Cox Mill High School.  College planning is not a separate strand within the model but is recognized as important component infused through all other strands.  It is certainly a vital part of our program at Cox Mill High School, as 90% of our students participate in some form of higher education immediately following high school, therefore we treat it as a separate strand of the model in and of itself.  Higher education and/or other advanced education/training beyond high school are essential in most jobs today.  The decision to invest time, effort, and financial resources in education beyond high school is a serious one and should be carefully considered.  Making the best choice for an individual's strengths, needs and plans is essential for success and well-being across the lifespan.  
    Cox Mill High School counselors believe that strong college preparation and planning is multi-layered, occurs across time, and ideally (but not necessarily) includes a fully-functioning support team of students, parents, teachers, counselors, college professionals and other supportive members of the community working collaboratively to add pieces of the puzzle that ultimately creates a successful map to higher education.  Students and their families are strongly encouraged to take advantage of web resources and events sponsored by CMHS school counselors as one part of their college preparation and planning process, while also tapping into the tremendous wealth of knowledge that is available through North Carolina's web-based and personnel resources at The College Foundation of North Carolina (CFNC)The University of North Carolina System, the many North Carolina Independent Colleges and Universities, and the North Carolina Community College System.
