Getting Started with JJ
90% of Cox Mill High School students go to college after high school. Junior Jumpstart is one of many resources CMHS School Counselors provide to help our students and their families prepare for the college-application cycle. Juniors who complete the recommended Five Steps to the Future will be well-prepared for the college application process. We recommend that Juniors and their parents/guardians engage in Junior Jumpstart in the spring of the student's 11th grade year of high school. Begin by watching this short video provided by your CMHS School Counselors.
