The program at CCHS is best described as primarily academically focused with an extensive Career and Technology Studies component. A full range of complementary courses for both junior and senior high is offered as well. County Central students have continually achieved at a very high level on Provincial Achievement Tests and Diploma Exams.
The educational program at County Central is augmented by the existence of the Vulcan Outreach School which operates on a separate campus in downtown Vulcan. Outreach Education allows students to access programs which may not be available in a traditional classroom delivery format as well as the opportunity to structure a program that suits their individual needs. The Vulcan Outreach School is a vital component of our school.
The implementation of technology in our instructional program has been a priority over the past several years. The school maintains a Windows Local Area Network (LAN) as part of the Palliser Regional Schools Wide Area Network (WAN). Wireless access is available throughout the school. The school has a 30 station pc lab, 50 laptops, an 18 station component in the library as well as a 16 station lab in our CTS location. Our network is online with high speed internet access and all students and teachers are well versed in computer technology and literacy.
A comprehensive sports program is offered. School teams include volleyball, basketball, golf, badminton, curling, track and field, cross-county running, rugby and baseball.
The school has been the beneficiary of a number of extensive renovations in the past which has resulted in an older, but excellent facility. The Cultural Recreational Centre (CRC) is attached to the school, making available to the school and the community the best sporting and cultural venue in the region. The Vulcan Body Works Club is another addition to the school operating with a first rate, high-tech fitness centre, squash/racquetball court and aerobics area.
County Central is an outstanding school operating in a fine community in southern Alberta.
