The Paint-A-Plow Project was created by the Jackson Transportation Department as a way for area schools to advertise and celebrate their art programs. Once the students finish painting the plow, it will be driven around the area to advertise for the Columbia School District. It is a great opportunity for students to work together on a design!

PSAT-National Merit Qualifier Test

Both the PSAT and the PSAT-NMSQT will be given at Columbia Central High School on Wednesday, October 11th.
  • PSAT will be provided to 9th grade students.
  • PSAT-NMSQT will be provided to 10th and 11th grade students.

This assessment is great practice for the SAT and can qualify students for scholarship programs. The results can also help lead students to choose the right AP course to take. It tests knowledge of reading, writing, language, and math. The focus is on what students have already learned in school and what students need to succeed in college.

Chad P. Dermyer Memorial Soccer Field Dedication

We would like to personally invite our community to a very special event taking place on Saturday, October 7th at 1 PM. On this day, we will dedicate our soccer field in memory of Chad P. Dermyer, Columbia Central Alumni, who lost his life in the line of duty as a Virginia State Police Trooper. We are honored to name our soccer field after a heroic young man who will remain a role model in our community for years to come. There will be an alumni soccer game after the dedication. The Columbia Township Fire and Police Department, along with the Brooklyn Irish Hills Chamber of Commerce, will assist us with the event. Please plan to attend this special ceremony.

Please plan to attend Parent-Teacher Conferences!

We encourage parents of 7th-12th grade students to attend conferences on the evening of October 10th from 5-8 PM. Refreshments will be served along with a special gift card giveaway.

  • 7th and 8th grade student-led conferences will be held in the Columbia Central Library from 5-8 PM.
  • All high school teachers will be available to speak with parents in their classrooms from 5-8 PM.

We will provide information about clubs, organizations, and other resources. This is a great opportunity to tour the building, meet our staff, and learn about Columbia Central Jr./Sr. High School.
