About Us

Our Mission

Mission Statement:  "The Central High School Foundation exists as a private fund-raising group to support Central High School’s pursuit of academic excellence for all students."

Our Purpose

The focus of the Central High School Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization founded in 2000, is to bridge the gap between student needs and state/district funding by raising money through donations. By providing state of the art technology and cutting edge programs, the CHSF will promote personal social growth, leadership and independence for ALL students. In addition, the Foundation is the legal and organizational core for coordinating parent and community fundraising for academic excellence at Central High School.  As an independent entity from the school and the Knox County School district, the Foundation is able to foster and develop new financial resources and facilitate community and business partnerships that will benefit all students.
