Welcome to Our School
CATOCTIN HIGH SCHOOL is surrounded by rolling farmland in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. It is a true community school, where students, staff, parents and business partners feel at home, especially each September when the campus showcases the rich agricultural heritage and craftsmanship that have thrived here for generations. Parents are actively involved so that students meet or exceed academic standards and accept responsibility for their conduct, character and achievement. Challenging academic programs complement our emphasis on personal growth to guarantee studentsí successful transition to post-secondary endeavors.

Recently renovated, CHS boasts some of the finest academic, technological and athletic facilities in Frederick County. With a new greenhouse, we are positioned to implement an Environmental Science Academy that also reaches into our primary and middle schools. Our staffs, combined with trained student-service learners, plan to capitalize on partnerships with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and local environmental groups to make the most of Marylandís natural resources and prepare our students for related careers.

Our dedicated and highly skilled staff members take pride in our studentsí many accomplishments. Teaching and learning is serious business, but we share fun and laughter along the way! We look forward to working together each day as we bring our schoolís mission to life and enhance the academic, social, emotional, and physical well-being of our fine students.
