The Tioga Central High School is located in rural, upstate New York and serves as the center of the surrounding communities. Our high school is captured in Hal Bowman's quote: "In the best schools, everyone in every position is a teacher. There are dozens of job titles, but they all share the same role: Change a kid's life." From our transportation drivers, food service workers, maintenance staff, and monitors to our teachers and administrators, they all devote their lives to providing a well-rounded education that focuses on helping all students reach their full potential.

The Tioga High School prides itself on our rigorous academic programs balanced with a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities and our intense passion for inter-scholastic athletics. The trust and support from the communities we serve are integral to creating an environment that provides the high achieving student the opportunity to earn an Associate's Degree while in high school. We also provide targeted, small group academic intervention services, so that no student lacks a strong foundation from which they can become a caring, productive member of society.
