Welcome to Portage Central High School

Portage Central News


Thanks for submitting questions to our FAQ for the fall

Thank you to all the folks who have submitted questions to PC’s Frequently Asked Questions as we prepare for the fall. Our hope from the start was to give you the information and ideas you need so that each of us can make the best decisions possible for our families and our sons and daughters. As we have worked on responding to your questions, we have learned that this process has been even more useful to us! You all have helped us think through the decisions and challenges ahead in ways we could never do on our own. So thanks a great, great deal.

And as you know, this is a work in progress; we will know more tomorrow than we do today. That’s why we will continue to update, revise, and add to this in the days and weeks ahead. Here is the link to the FAQ

Too, if you have a question that has not been asked, please share that with us. You can do that through this form

Thanks again for helping us think through all of this together. That’s what healthy communities do.

Our Salute to the Graduates and Light Up the Night!

More than 80% of our graduates submitted pictures of themselves wearing their caps and gowns — and we are thrilled! (For those of you who didn’t, that’s okay: we used the picture you submitted to the yearbook.) Colleagues worked an entire weekend — especially band teacher Allison Patrick, who is truly amazing — to create a complete video slideshow of all the members of our Class of 2020. We so hope you will enjoy watching this Salute to Our Graduates at least as much as we enjoyed creating it.  Salute to Our Graduates link.

Congratulations to our 2020 IB Diploma Seniors

Please enjoy our video honoring the 2020 Senior IB Diploma Candidates.  This video is to recognize each of our IB Diploma Candidates and celebrate where they will be continuing their educational journey, as well as what they plan to study in the future.  We are very proud of their accomplishments and dedication to the International Baccalaureate Program over the last two years and wish them nothing but the best in their future endeavors.

Essential information for seniors and parents of seniors

The Counseling Office has put together a short video on some important ‘end of the school year’ things for our seniors.  Included are some brief instructions on requesting your final transcript, completing an important senior survey, and some reminders on grades, credits, and GPA.  We know that sometimes you might have a question about these kinds of things, and we thought a quick video would be helpful.  Enjoy!

Congratulations to PC’s Art and Design Teacher Ms. Honeysett

Buy a brick for McCamley Field, Mustang Field, or the new pool!

Back by popular demand…

So many families and community members purchased bricks at the new McCamley Field and tiles at the new pool — to leave their mark in these spaces where so many great kids celebrated and where so many more will celebrate decades into the future.

But if you missed your chance last year, you have another chance now! Plus, we have a new space to commemorate your family, friends, and experiences. Mustang Field hosted its first soccer games this fall, and we are so grateful for what our community has built.

This sale continues until Graduation Day this spring. So if you are considering a brick at the new McCamley or Mustang Field, click here.

If you would like a tile at the new pool, click here.

Thank you — again and again — for all that you have done!
