First Day of School-August 22, 2017
A Message from the Principal
I would like to welcome everyone back for the 2017-2018 school year. It is with great pride that I serve as Principal of Columbia High School. My goal is to work each day to provide our students with a safe and nurturing environment that will help them become contributing members of the community and ensure that all students are college and career ready. Our school team aims to help every child become a global learner and reach their full potential.
During the 2016-17 school year, we celebrated many successes and recognitions. The 2017 graduates earned over 2 million dollars in scholarships to various colleges and universities, to include a student receiving a full scholarship to the prestigious Harvard University. In addition, 20 students have committed to military service to our country. We are preparing students with World Class Knowledge for life and career paths after high school through our STEM academies, award-winning AFJROTC, Visual and Performing Arts, and Career Center Programs. We had 40 completers in our STEM academies and in programs such as Culinary Arts, Automotive/Diesel Technology, and Cosmetology. Students in the Academy of Finance completed internships and field studies to the Federal Reserve Building, and the Southeastern Manufacturing Institute. A partnership with Wells Fargo Advisors lead to the start of a Women in Finance group right here at CHS!
In athletics, the number of students participating in one or more sports while maintaining a solid academic record of a C average or better rose to over 356 student athletes.
Some of our athletic accomplishments include:
The Columbia High School Family will continue to strengthen relationships with parents and the community to help our students achieve success. We are so proud of their accomplishments and look forward to greater things to come.
We Just Can’t Hide That Capital Pride!
