We strongly encourage all interested students and their parents to attend and take advantage of the opportunity to tour the building, obtain information, and learn about the opportunities at Central Community High School.  If you have a child entering high school next year, the 8th Grade Information Night is an important first step in making the transition.  Please let others know about the event as well. 


Over the next few months, we will be working with current students to register in courses for the 2015-16 school year.  As part of this process, we encourage students and their parents to discuss the sequence of courses and preferences in a four-year curricular plan.
