Board of Education Rep Position Open

We are looking for a volunteer to attend the Board of Ed meetings and report back to the PFA. This important role helps the PFA to share relevant information with the high school community in a timely manner. Please contact Geri Mohr or Sarah Wrede to learn more about this position.

NCHS Library Volunteers Needed!

Please consider volunteering in the HS Library/Media Center this year! It's a great way to interact with students and get a feel for what's going on at NCHS.

The shifts are 95 minutes long every two weeks. The shift entails assisting at the circulation desk and shelving materials.  Past experience is not necessary. 

Please contact Liz Orelup if you are interested in volunteering in the library.

The College and Career Center is up and running for the new school year! Please visit our School Counseling page and follow the College and Career Center on Twitter (@nchscolcar) and Facebook (@NCHS College and Career Center) for the latest news on college admissions, financial aid and youth employment.

Colleges Visiting NCHS

College visits begin the week of September 12. Seniors who wish to attend college visits and hear first-hand the latest news from colleges in which they may be interested must register for the visits on Naviance and ask for permission from the faculty to miss class. 

Students who are unable to meet with the reps should stop by the CCC before the visit time and fill out a form indicating their interest in the visiting school. Attendance is taken at these sessions which will be conducted in person or via  Zoom. 

The visit schedule may be viewed through Naviance and on the School Counseling page of the NCHS website. 

NC Rams All Sports Booster Club

The NC Rams All Sports Booster Club supports all New Canaan High School athletic programs. We raise and distribute funds to provide necessary athletic program components which are above and beyond those provided by the NCHS athletic budget and assures equity of resources for all CIAC-recognized sports. Each year, the Club funds additional coaches for every team, raising the skillset and abilities of all athletes.

More than 70% of all NCHS students participate in school athletics in any given year. For these students, athletics are an integral part of the educational process. Through athletic participation, students learn teamwork, work ethic, time management and a responsibility to others.
