Cougar Summer Announcements


Kaskaskia College will be starting the After School College Program for students who will be juniors and seniors this fall. The KC Foundation is funding this program which will allow for the tuition, mandatory fees, and online fees to be waived with the student being responsible for textbooks and lab fees if applicable.  Central students will be able to take courses that are no longer offered as dual credit at Central (POLS 101 & SPCH 103 in the fall and ENGL 101 & BIOL 121 in the Spring). Classes will be during the evening hours throughout the week and some on Saturday if a lab is involved at the KC Trenton center. KC's priority deadline is June 1st. Please do not wait until the last minute since the registration form does require a high school signature. Students need to see Miss Lohman for registration forms. 


Football cheerleading tryouts will be held May 29th through June 1st.  Anyone interested in trying out needs to pick up a cheer packet in the office.   Coach Straeter.


Join the Midwest Cyber Center at McKendree University for a week long FREE CyberCamp June 25-29 from 9am - 12pm. This camp is open to all Middle School and High School students (students going into 6th - 12th grade for the upcoming school year).  Students will be able to explore cybersecurity career opportunities, cyber ethics, online safety, how computers work, and cyber threats. They will have the opportunity to learn these skills through fun, hands-on, interactive activities. The last day of the camp will give the students the opportunity to test what they've learned through a fun mini competition! Register online at



The 2018 Summer Camp Forms for Boys’ Basketball, Girls’ Basketball, Baseball, Football, Soccer, Volleyball and Golf may be found on the Central Cougars Website which is
