Why did you choose to be a part of the CHS ECHS Program? Because it would guide me in making the most of my high school curriculum and would prepare me for college.

Some of the supports you have received as a member of the ECHS program: Participating in the National College Fair, a college tour at IU East and opportunities to see my teachers for additional help using our ECHS-issued SRT passes.
