Center Point-Urbana High School’s mission is to develop successful, life-long learners by providing a safe and caring environment, a stimulating curriculum, and a dedicated staff working with supportive parents in a friendly, small-town atmosphere. Each of these foundational beliefs is put into practice to meet the needs of our students.

The high school teachers are a dedicated staff. Our collective experience and commitment to developing the whole student is apparent in our dedication in the classroom and in supporting extra-curricular activities. Because of our collective experience, parents are highly supportive and trust the school acts in the best interest of their child. We recognize the responsibility that comes with parents' trust and appreciate the opportunity to work with parents to develop contributing citizens.

To ensure positive growth and successful learning in preparation for college and careers, we have implemented a standards -based learning system that is complemented with practices and strategies, such as blended learning, explicit instruction, and a focus on literacy in all content areas.

CPU offers a balance of eclectic courses and a myriad of activities. With a graduation rate of 98 percent and 88 percent of our students involved in extra-curricular activities shows that students feel safe and want to be here. From the administration, to the teachers, to the support staff, to the students, we are about fostering emotional and academic growth to create a Caring Community in a Positive Environment as Upstanding Citizens -- our mantra is not just a saying, but the CPU-way.
