We beleive that many of our students are ready and eager to do serious college work and that their ambition should be taken seriously.

World Languages - prepares students to be linguistically and culturally competent in languages other than English. CHEC has DCPS’s only grade 6-12 Dual Language immersion program. Students also have the option of taking Italian, French, Spanish, Arabic, and Mandarin Chinese.

Robotics - is part of CHEC's Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) initiative. Students use math, physics, art, and their ingenuity to create robots to compete with other schools. Students interact with professional mentors from science and engineering fields at least once a week, giving students positive role models, job skills, and an insight into the engineering field.

Study Abroad - prepares CHEC students to be global-ready. Today’s employers seek graduates who can communicate in at least one foreign language, have multi-cultural knowledge, possess skills and training in negotiating with people of different cultures and have the basic skills to travel and work outside of the United States.
