College Placement

CHAD school counselors work with students throughout their high school years to offer a framework for college and career planning. Using the Naviance software and in person formats, CHAD counselors deliver a range of services from large scale events to individual counseling. As a result, CHAD students are accepted to top design schools and universities around the county and are admitted to and enroll in college at a higher rate than the Philadelphia School District.


Naviance is a comprehensive K-12 college and career readiness platform that enables self-discovery, career exploration, academic planning, and college preparation for all CHAD students.

What is the FAFSA?
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the most important application you must complete in order to qualify for almost all types of financial aid including federal, state, local, and private grants and scholarships.

Why complete the FAFSA?
The U. S. Department of Education uses the information provided on your FAFSA to determine your eligibility for aid from federal student financial assistance programs. In Pennsylvania, the FAFSA is used to determine State Grant eligibility. Schools also use FAFSA data to award their own financial aid.
