Dear Century Families and students,
Welcome to the 2021-22 school year at Century! I am delighed to welcome staff, students and families to what will be a great year.
To our 1500 enrolled students--if you are interested and seeking involvement, Century has something for you!
Our staff has been engaged in professional development and planning, preparing to engage and challenge our students and support them to success. The positive energy in the building grows in August every year as teachers and staff gather to create engaging lessons for our students--and this year is no different! Perhaps even more, we are so happpy to be back to in-person learning. We all learned a lot last year, and we look forward to seeing what our students learned too! We are delighted to continue our fall outreach calls to check in with families and students. We want to know your needs as we begin this year, and to support you.
Century continues to offer a variety of courses to prepare students to be college and career ready, able and prepared for whatever their future holds after high school. In addition to being an AVID Site of Distinction, promoting college and career preparations for all students schoolwide, we offer a strong AP program, and have expanded our dual credit offerings to meet the demands of our community. Our goal is that every student graduates having taken courses of rigor. Our College and Career Pathways offer our students exploration of career pathways that interest and engage them. This year, we have added a College and Career Center, as well as an additional grade level counselor, to better meet the needs of our students to attain their post-high school dreams.
We also offer a strong system of supports to help students succeed in their goals. A strong counseling program of comprehensive guidance, a committed team of grade level graduation coaches, our Student Support and Wellness Counselor, Options classroom, Brain lab (Wellness Center), and partnerships with Youth Contact are designed to support students with their academic, social and emotional needs during their high school journey. This year, we will continue advisories to ensure we are able to address the social-emotional learning needs of all our students.
We have welcomed many new staff members this year, and they are all focused on positive relationships with students, a core value of our school.
Most important of all is our work with you as families. Our work together to help your students successfully navigate their high school experience is so important. It is truly a partnership. The entire staff of Century High School looks forward to serving you and supporting all our students to attain their goals and find success.
We look forward to a great year!
