Mission: “Every student successfully completes high school.”

Vision: “Floyd Central High School provides a learning environment that prepares students to contribute as citizens of a diverse society; pursue post-secondary education and training; compete globally for jobs.”

Floyd Central High School is a part of the New Albany-Floyd County School Corporation which serves nearly 11,000 students in Floyd County, Indiana. FCHS opened in the fall of 1967 and has nearly doubled its enrollment since that time. It replaced the historic Georgetown School, which served grades 1-12.

The New Albany-Floyd County School Corporation comprises the twelfth largest school district in the state. Currently, the Floyd Central campus is a 97.25 acre complex that includes outdoor athletic fields and a planetarium, tennis courts, both an indoor and outdoor track, weight room facility, an auditorium and small theatre and up-to-date classrooms.

In the spring of 2013 and 2014 Floyd Central High School was named to the Washington Post List of America’s Most Challenging High Schools. The Indiana Department of Education also recognized Floyd Central as an Indiana Four Star School 18 times in the school history and 4 out of the last 5 years. Floyd Central has also received two National School of Excellence Blue Ribbon Awards in 1996 and in 2002.
