College & Career Counseling

At Chicago Hope Academy, graduation is not the end; it’s the beginning. Starting freshman year, Hope students explore the questions “Who am I?” “How do I learn best?” and “What do I want to do after I leave Chicago Hope Academy?”

As students ask and seek to answer these questions, they have access to resources and staff for support. The College & Career Counseling Department at Chicago Hope Academy implements a curriculum for all grades, 9-12, designed to prepare students to succeed during their Hope career, their college career, and beyond.

As a part of this curriculum, students take interest inventories, participate in application writing workshops, explore a variety of career paths, and investigate many post-Hope options.
