Our mission is for every student to learn today so they may Lead Tomorrow!. Castle is the home of the 2017-2018 Marching Band National Champions!
We are a local not-for-profit organization that was established to give a bit of help to seniors as they graduate and move on to college or technical training. We have awarded nearly 1,600 scholarships to Castle seniors, totaling over $685,000, in our 23 years. Last year we presented scholarships to 86 different seniors! Although our scholarships are not typically huge amounts, we as a board see it as a way to recognize the hard work that seniors have put in during their time at CHS! We can only do this with the help of our Castle community--parents, alums, clubs, and businesses. Every little bit helps. If you are feeling quite generous, you can have a named scholarship for a $300 or more donation. In this case you can make recipient stipulations such as major, gpa, etc. Feel free to contact Missy Fanok at 812-629-0775 if you wish to learn more about these specific giving opportunities. Help us convey this message to many of our seniors, "Nice work, and here is a bit of help as you work towards your future goals."

Stakeholders of Castle High School,
Castle High School (CHS) will be working through our five year accreditation process during the 2020-2021 school year. In order for us to complete this process we must have a battery of surveys distributed and completed by a variety of different stakeholder groups within our school and community at large. We must have a certain percentage of stakeholders complete these surveys in order for us to "count" (validate) the data.
Please take a few moments to honestly answer the survey questions linked below. These will also be posted to the CHS website, blasted via CHS social media platforms, and will be included in next month's newsletter. The School Improvement Team at CHS appreciates your help in making Castle one of the best schools in Indiana!
Children under the age of five who are living in Warrick County are eligible to register for a book to arrive at their home every month. The books are published and distributed by the Dollywood Foundation. The books are a FREE gift from our community. The initial funds were raised by a dedicated group of students who want to see the program continue for years to come. Warrick Literacy and Educational Connections (WLEC) is a 501C3 non-for-profit organization that is working to make that dream a reality
