Welcome to Central Union High School



Pick up pre-registration packets from the Central Union High School Office and bring the completed forms back during your scheduled date/time.  Pre-registration packets will be available beginning July 16, between 8:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. All documents must be completed, dated, and signed.  Some documents require both parent and student signatures.  Once again, parents/guardians must present (2) copies/originals of recent documents from 2 different agencies dated June or July (IID, rent, water, gas, phone, or cable bills) to verify residency.  It will expedite the process if you bring copies of the bills or are able to leave us the originals.  Schedules will not be available during registration.

Attention:  We will hold a special “Link Crew” orientation for all freshmen on Friday, August 10th, from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon in the gymnasium. Link Crew is a freshman transition program that will help your incoming freshman learn about school policies and provide opportunities to enhance their academic success.  An enjoyable afternoon filled with fun activities is guaranteed!!

Principal Message

Dear Parents, Students, Alumni and Friends,

As the Principal of Central Union High School, I am looking forward to another great year.  It is an honor to work with over 1900 students and nearly 160 staff members to ensure a positive and rewarding experience for your student. Central Union High School is proud of our rich history of academic, extra-curricular, and athletic programs designed to benefit and advance student curricular and extracurricular achievements.  We offer a variety of course offerings and pathways that are rigorous and supported by wonderful staff members working to ensure students’ academic success.  Additionally, our students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of extracurricular and co-curricular activities that allow our students to showcase their talents throughout the year from athletic teams, Robotics Team,  cheerleading, tall flags, majorettes, Spar-teens and The Great Spartan Band to just name a few. 

This year (and every year), the students and staff of Central Union will work towards shaping the future of our students by developing skills, abilities, and knowledge. The Central Union staff believes that teaching above and beyond the standards helps ensure all students are Career and College Ready. Central Union is very proud of our rich traditions and we look forward to providing a safe and positive learning environment for all students. Help us encourage your students to become involved in our programs outside of the regular school day. Student organizations, clubs, and athletics all promote and support school community involvement and academic success.

I look forward to working with the many families that trust the Central Union staff to educate and care for their students. The administration team is always available to meet and discuss school issues or the individual progress of any student with parents, guardians, and the students themselves. Additionally, our excellent counselors and other support staff make themselves available at all times to assist in supporting our students’ experience.

To make the school year the best for you and your student please support Central Union High School in any way you can. Consider becoming part of the Spartan family, by joining the Spartan Athletic Club, our Band Booster club, or volunteering for help with school events and activities. I look forward to making the high school experience a positive and memorable one for you and your student. We hope to see you at our many activities that make high school a great experience!  On behalf of the staff here at Central Union, thanks for supporting us and your student and making this a great year!
