From The CHS Career Counselor, Mrs. Hummer

  1. Direct Enrollment is coming to Germanna Community College this fall. It will mean many changes in how students are placed into classes. In math, students will be placed into one of three classes based upon their high school GPA, performance on past aptitude tests, and will also, in some cases, allow students to self-place into their courses. English class placement is similar. This affects students entering Germanna in Fall 2020. Degrees have also changed with reduced requirements. Summer classes are open for registration now. Fall classes registration opens April 1. See your Career Coach to see where you fit. Sign up here to see the Career Coach.
