Areas included nursing, biology, other medical fields, pure sciences, math, engineering, business and commerce, as well as the arts and social sciences.

 Grad Talk

Centennial CVI students in the gender studies class are spreading an important message about loving your body

Love Your Body

Students said that at some point in everyone’s life they feel insecure about their body and find it hard to love themselves. Loving your body can be a very difficult thing and is especially challenging for many high school students. This served as the inspiration for the Love your Body campaign.  Learning to love yourself is one of the most important steps to happiness and these students are doing a great job spreading this positive message to the community.

School Emergency Response Training & Annual Drills

At Centennial CVI, the safety and well-being of our students is our highest priority. Although we hope that an incident that requires response from emergency personnel will never occur in our school, we must be prepared to respond quickly and effectively in case it does.  Each year our school conducts drills to ensure staff and students are prepared in the event of a real emergency. Our school conducts fire drills, lockdown drills, a tornado drill, and a bomb threat drill. The 2016-17 protocol requires the following number of drills:  Three (3) fire drills in the fall and three (3) fire drills in the spring, Two (2) lockdown drills, One (1) tornado drill, One (1) bomb threat drill.  For each of these drills, there is an education component to explain why they are necessary.  All drills are conducted in a manner that is sensitive to the needs of students.  If you have any questions please contact the school office.
