Renaissance - History

The Central High School Renaissance Program was established:

The Renaissance Program provides Gold, Silver, and Bronze cards to students who are performing with excellence in the classroom both academically and with good character. Those cards give students free access to home athletic events and other benefits.

Through the years the Renaissance Program has proven itself as a source of consistent support for the students at Central High School and the teachers fortunate enough to be on staff here.



To determine eligibility for a card, grades are checked after each semester. Grade point average (GPA) will be used in the following manner.

Gold Card: All A's - 4.0 GPA
Silver Card: 3 A's and 1 B - 3.75 - 3.99 GPA
Bronze Card: 2 A's and 2 B's or 3 A's and 1 C - 3.5 - 3.69 GPA

Students must be enrolled full-time to earn a card.

The Renaissance Program is voluntary. Students who wish to participate MUST sign up and verify which card they have earned before the deadline set each semester.

Central High is fortunate to have the active support of many parents, alumni, business and community leaders throughout the area. Their interest in the various programs and curriculum areas in the school has brought about a true "renaissance" at Central. It is because of their continued support that our quest for excellence is possible.
