Welcome From Principal Hallihan

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