Our academic program is complemented by a full slate of offerings in interscholastic athletics and co-curricular activities. We are very proud of our athletes! MANY ‘scholar athletes’ have walked the halls of our school over the years, some have even gone on to the collegiate level. Our athletics program includes mergers with two other rural area school districts. This has created unique opportunities for relationships among area youth and their families to grow across two counties and three local school communities. Our school is fortunate in that the Town of Colesville’s Harpursville Youth Civic Association also prepares many of our local young athletes for athletics. We offer volleyball, football, basketball, baseball, softball, cheer, soccer, field hockey, cross country, wrestling, bowling, indoor track, and outdoor track. Our various team mergers differ by sport. Teams are comprised of various combinations of athletes from Harpursville, Afton, and Bainbridge-Guilford Central Schools.
Additionally, we offer the following co-curricular clubs and activities that students can participate in:
Student Government (grades 3-12!)
National Honor Society
National Art Honor Society
Our robotics team has earned an invitation to compete at the World Championship in Texas- twice!
The district is governed by a Board of Education comprised of seven elected community members. District Superintendent Heath Georgia and a dedicated team of professionals and support staff work hard to identify and address the educational needs of all students.
