Welcome to A-C Central High School

Dear A-C Central Parents and Community:


As principal of A-C Central High School and Junior High, it is my pleasure to welcome everyone back for another great year at A-C Central. We are all excited to have our students back in our classrooms and hallways filling them with energy and enthusiasm for learning. It is our mission to help every child feel welcomed, connected, and a part of the A-C Central family. In addition, we strive to challenge each student to grow in his or her academic abilities and to be college and career ready by the end of their years at A-C. At A-C Central, we have great teachers who spend hours planning and creating classroom activities to engage our students in learning. Our teachers utilize research-based best practices and analyze assessment data to determine current skill levels and to set goals for growth and improvement. We believe that all students should graduate from high school prepared for the demands of post-secondary education, meaningful careers, and effective citizenship.

I am honored to serve as the principal of A-C Central High School and Junior High. It is truly a privilege to be a part of a community where parents, teachers, and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth. Please feel free to contact me at 217-476-3730 or at [email protected].

Once again, welcome back! Let’s make it another great year at A-C Central together!
