Welcome students and parents of the class of 2018 to Carlsbad High School!  You are bringing your individuality, talents and interests to a diverse and vibrant Lancer community.

By participating in a session with your CHS counselor during 8thGrade Orientation Nights and completing the 9thgrade course selection process, you are preparing for a smooth beginning to your freshman year. Students and parents are scheduled to attend a 45 minute session with their counselor on one of the two 8thgrade Orientation Nights.

In the session, you will:

  • Finalize your 9thgrade course selections
  •  Learn about graduation and college admission requirements, four-year academic planning, Naviance, and other helpful school information.
  • Attend the CHS Clubs and Organizations Fair in Lancer Plaza between 3:30 and 5:30 p.m. Plan to attend before your counselor session to learn about many extracurricular opportunities.

Please follow these important steps in preparation for your Orientation session and the course selection process:

STEP 1:  Open Session Schedule to determine YOUR scheduled date and time
