Upcoming Special Programs & Events

Catholic Education

A faithful Catholic education can prepare students not only for a career, but for life. To get a taste of the value of a faithful Catholic education, high school students are encouraged to look at summer programs at the colleges recommended in The Newman Guide to Choosing a Catholic College.

These programs are a great opportunity for high school students to strengthen their academic and extracurricular skills, grow in their spiritual lives, get a head-start on college visits, learn from distinguished professors, make lifelong friends, and experience what faithful Catholic education is all about.

CHE College Process Ambassador Program

High school and first-year college students face many challenges. Understanding deadlines, scholarship applications, FAFSA information, and other parts of the process can sometimes leave new or prospective college students feeling overwhelmed. 

To facilitate a smooth transition, the CHE selects College Process Ambassadors to guide others in their journey to higher education. The students are high school seniors, expecting to graduate by the end of the 2023-2024 academic year with postsecondary educational plans.

The Ambassadors highlight college application and success resources to support the upcoming class of high school graduates and college students. They actively assist others via community outreach and they also participate in and promote events related to College Application Month, College Goal SC, and College Decision Month.

They also create and share social media content on SCCanGo platforms, which encourage students, families, and communities to apply and get ready for college.

Ambassadors obtain up to $1,000 in scholarship funds, personalized support and feedback from CHE, and professional training on how to support other students during the college application journey.
