A note from the Director
Happy Summer! The 22/23 school year has been a huge success and we want to thank our students and families for choosing Central Campus. We will be adding to our Central Campus team for the 23/24 school year as student enrollment has increased. We will be expanding our course offerings in Culinary, Welding, Auto Tech, Business, Math, Hospitality and Tourism Management and Health Sciences.
Additionally, we are expanding our registered apprenticeship and paid internship opportunities so students can experience their career interests and make a solid plan for their post-secondary journeys. We will have DMPS students working for our IT department as well as offering a summer CNA session. We are excited to launch these programs and hope to add more in the years to come. Central Campus will also be hosting summer camps for rising 7th and 8th graders, so they might begin to consider their career interest as they plan for high school.
It takes a team to pull all of this off, and our Central Campus staff is always willing and eager to serve students in our community. We love our Central Campus teachers and wish everyone a wonderful summer break.

- Students wishing to add new CC coursework need to take the CC Course Request Survey. When results are available, Mary Moua will reach out to families and will leave word with the counselor or an administrator over the summer.
- All students who are needing schedule changes, adds and drops, over the summer, are encouraged to speak with their high school counselors first. All schedule changes will need to come from a school counselor or administrator. We understand getting a hold of counselors over the summer can be a challenge, so we will try to assist the best we can.
