Centreville Public Schools are located in St. Joseph County in southwest Michigan. We are a rural district with an enrollment of approximately 860 students in kindergarten through 12th grade. Every staff member is committed to providing a quality 21st-century educational experience for all of our students.
Our priorities include ensuring students thrive in a safe and secure environment. We provide a variety of opportunities and experiences. Our curriculum and programs enable students to develop a solid foundation of knowledge along with the social and problem-solving skills necessary for continuous growth and development. We have a strong supportive cast starting with our parents, grandparents, and guardians. We are proud of our community and the role we play in it.
Centreville Public Schools is the place “Dedicated to Excellence...One student at a time.”
Centreville High School is proud to offer a variety of opportunities in order to prepare our students for life beyond graduation. Below are some statistics that show how we are accomplishing this goal.
Of our 2016 senior class, 96% were in programs that prepared them for post-secondary success, including:
- 41% were dual enrolled taking college courses with the tuition and books paid for by the school.
- 55% were in a CTE program or work-based learning experience acquiring job skills. Some of these programs have resulted in direct or articulated college credit through GOCC and SMC.
- 56% were in online courses, either for credit recovery, or to take an elective class in an area of interest. Examples of elective classes are: Russian, German, Culinary Arts, Cosmetology, Advanced Placement (AP) Human Geography, and Pre-Engineering.
Centreville High School has consistently been one of the top schools in the county for dual enrollment, even when compared to some of the larger schools. This allows students to earn college credit towards a degree or certificate. We have implemented the Early Middle College program in partnership with the St. Joseph County ISD and Glen Oaks Community College, whereby students take a 13th year of study to potentially earn a 2-year college degree or certificate in addition to their high school diploma. Students receive support in areas such as test preparation for state tests and college entrance exams, college search and application completion, completing the FAFSA and other scholarship applications, senior portfolios, remediation, and life skills. Additionally, independent study opportunities with teachers allow students to go further in the curriculum.
There are student mentoring programs in both the elementary and jr/sr high school to foster a sense of school community and encourage students to reach their full potential.
