2021-2022 School Year 
With the COVID-19 pandemic, we do not know what the 2021-2022 school year will bring.  We are hopeful that the upcoming school year will allow for in-person instruction; however, this cannot be guaranteed. What we can guarantee is open and honest communication and an unwavering commitment to the safety and wellbeing of all students and staff.  


Welcome to Joliet Central High School, home of the Steelmen!

Joliet Central has a variety of opportunities that meet student interests of all kinds.  We offer over 30 student clubs, 28 athletic opportunities, an award-winning Advanced Placement program, vast curricular offerings, and an academy structure that provides comprehensive college and career readiness skills.  At Joliet Central, there is something for everybody.  We urge all our students to find areas of interest to discuss with our guidance department, athletic director, club sponsors and any faculty member or administrator.  Becoming involved beyond the classroom is a key factor to student success.

If you are new to Joliet Central, we are here to support you during this transition.  If you have any questions or would like to schedule a time to visit the campus, please do not hesitate to contact me. 

I look forward to working in partnership to achieve student success!
