Welcome to CTL High, where every student is not just a member of a school community, but a valued member of our family.

At CTL High, we believe in nurturing a kind, supportive atmosphere where students thrive. We aim to provide an educational experience that equips students with the skills they need not only for success in their academic pursuits but also for success in all aspects of life.


In our dynamic learning environment, students are immersed in experiences that develop essential 21st-century skills. We recognize that the ability to adapt and thrive in an ever-changing world is paramount. Therefore, our curriculum is designed to cultivate skills such as flexibility, creativity, communication, and literacy – skills that are indispensable for navigating the challenges of today and tomorrow.


Each student is empowered to be themselves while being challenged to learn, grow, and strive for greatness. Our supportive community ensures that every student feels valued and supported on their learning journey.


At CTL, we prioritize both academic excellence and practical readiness for the future. Through our dual credit and college preparatory programs, as well as life skills courses, we ensure that students are well-prepared for the next phase of their lives, whether it be further education, a career, or any other path they choose to pursue.


Above all, we believe in the power of community and mutual support. Our students uplift and support one another, creating an environment where everyone can thrive. Together, we celebrate successes, overcome challenges, and inspire each other to reach new heights.


We don't just educate students – we empower them to shape their futures and make a positive impact on the world.

Critical Thinking


Enjoying School 

"My biggest transformation here is wanting to go back to school again... like actually wanting to come to school each day because when I was at my old school I didn't feel that way!"

Welcoming Atmosphere

"The school's atmosphere, with it just being so welcoming, really helped me get to know people and kind of break out of my shell. And I've noticed this the same for everyone else who comes here. It's a very nice environment."

The CTL Family

"It really is a family here at CTL. My friends are some of the closest people to me and the teachers are like second parents."
