IT MAY SEEM LIKE A MILLION YEARS AGO... But not too long ago, we were in their shoes:

Anxious parents of GT middle-schoolers.

Wondering if that 'Brainiac High School' we had heard so much about was really the right fit for our child.

NOW is your chance to help the next group of potential Rhinos find their way to CVHS. Magnet Tours are still going to be an essential part of the decision process this year. But we cannot do it without you!

Magnet Tours will be virtual this year and we need parent volunteers to provide the parent perspective both in prerecorded segments and in live (virtual) question and answer sessions.

If you’re interested in being a part of the Carnegie Magnet Tours, please email volunteers@cvhspto.org

The first tour is very SOON!! 

  • Times will be from 1:00 pm until 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm (latest).
