Welcome to Central

CrestFounded in 1854, Central High School is the oldest, free public high school in continuous operation west of the Allegheny Mountains. Offering programs such as Project Lead the Way, Medical Professions Academy and Pre-engineering, and a year-long freshman transition program, students at Central High School have a variety of options to help each student succeed. There are also more than 40 athletic teams and clubs available for each student.

Attention Juniors -- Are you interested in learning about the FBI? The FBI will be hosting a Youth Leadership Academy this summer from July 8-10. The YLA is designed to promote an educational experience that will provide students with the valuable leadership training and a greater understanding of the FBI. Through interactive physical challenges and classroom discussion we seek to further explain to youth how the FBI addresses the concerns of the community. If you are interested in completing an application please Mrs. Nebelecky in the counselors office.
