Charge ahead is staffed by faculty and student leaders, Charge Ahead alumni, as well as administrators and counselors!  This provides a great opportunity to meet important leaders and make connections before school starts.

Activities & Events

Student leaders will take participants on guided tours of Chantilly HS, including answers to important questions such as which stairwells are most crowded?  Where do the freshmen hang out? What is a sub school?  What about lockers? 

Motivational speakers will include faculty, staff, coaches, administrators, student and club leaders.

Instructional seminars will be held by student and faculty leaders about such topics like scheduling experiences, AP/Honors classes, electives experience, academy experiences, sports tryouts, and joining clubs.

Leadership and Student Government representatives will be on hand to talk about their experiences and why students should be involved in Leadership & SGA.   They also serve as greeters, table leaders and talk with students about some of the activities and school events that are planned by Leadership.  They will share experiences about homecoming, school climate, and more!

Chic Fil A lunch will be served along with snacks and will be given a t-shirt that is all included with registration.


You don’t want to miss this event!  This is an optional event for incoming freshman.


Charge Ahead is truly the best FCPS freshmen orientation program EVER!

“Any excess monies from registration fee will be donated to the Freshman Class and or instructional supplies to enhance the Charge Ahead program.”
