About - Floyd Central High School
Home of the Highlanders


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 2020, Floyd Central Early College High School was established through a partnership with Ivy Tech Community College. The New Albany Floyd county School District adopted a school-within-a-school model at Floyd Central High School. This model enables the district to operate two schools within the same building: a traditional high school and an early college high school. Students enrolled in FC Early College have the opportunity to earn an Associate’s degree or College Ready Core (CRC) from Ivy Tech CC as they achieve a Core 40 diploma, Core 40 with Academic Honors (AHD), or a Core 40 with Technical Honors (THD) from FCHS.
