CCHS is an alternative learning academy in the New Haven Unified School District. Our smaller class sizes allow the teachers to focus more on the individual learning styles of each student.
Transfers happen at the beginning of the quarter. Students will need to submit application to their counselor and the application will then be sent to CCHS. After reviewing the application, you will receive a phone call to set up an intake with a CCHS administrator 2-4 weeks before the start of the new quarter. Intakes allow us to do our due diligence for each student. We explore their academic history, why they are deficient in credits, and if they have issues with any of our current students. CCHS also has a minimum residency of 2 quarters for graduation. We will only be able to process students at the end of the previous quarter to get them ready for the next quarter. In addition, each student is required to go through a mandatory orientation. At the beginning of each school year, there is a school wide orientation that lasts two-three days. Each quarter thereafter is a day long orientation for all new students. Social dimension work, writing samples, school rules, school culture, and various other academic activities are explored during this time. This application and intake process has been critical to the success of CCHS over the years. It is during these conversations and orientations that the expectation is set for students to successfully complete their high school career.
