CHS has a supportive PTO that, in addition to supporting student and staff activities, hosts informational sessions throughout the year. The CHS Program of Studies offers challenging classes, a variety of electives, and it has one of the state‘s largest selections of Advanced Placement courses, as well as dual enrollment agreements with the University of Virginia and Piedmont Virginia Community College.

CHS students are accepted at top colleges around the world and honored by many awards and recognitions in all areas of learning. CHS offers more than 30 college-level courses (Advanced Placement and Dual Enrollment) and it is possible for a CHS graduate to earn an Associate's Degree from PVCC while still in high school. Seventy-four percent of the scores earned were 3 or above, and more than half of the tests taken earned scores of 4 or 5. AP scores have consistently been in this range for a decade at CHS!

Three CHS students were 2013 named National Merit Scholar Semi-Finalists; 15 students were commended by the NMS program. SAT combined mean scores for 2012-2013 in Verbal, Math, and Writing — resp., 567, 550, 558— are well above both state (516, 514, 498) and national mean scores.
