Centerville-Abington Schools has a long history of being one of the highest performing schools in Wayne County and in East Central Indiana.  The Indiana Department of Education has designated all of our schools as “Four Star School’s” this means that our schools score in the Top 25% in the state.  We are the only school corporation in Wayne County to receive this designation in each school.

The school corporation has received an “A” grade from the state for our quality of schools for two years in 2011 and 2012. rates Centerville-Abington Community Schools 17th out of 313 Indiana school corporations.  We are the only school in Wayne County that is district accredited through AdvancED/NCA and the seventh school in the state to be so accredited in 2007.  The rigor of a district accreditation indicates that Centerville-Abington Community Schools can compete academically with the best in the state.  We offer a wide range of Advanced Placement programs and also an academically talented program.  Our students attend The Whitewater Technical Center which is one of the best career programs in the state.  Because of the eight block schedule, our students are also able to utilize post-secondary classes at Ivy Tech, IU East, Purdue at IU East and Earlham College.  Students are able to take classes, which we do not offer, with our online classes through PLATO.

Our school also provides excellent extra-curricular facilities and activities.  Our schools offer many activities that other schools in the area do not provide.  We offer soccer, swimming, and bowling and our music programs are excellent.  We also provide before and after school childcare from 6:00 a.m. until school starts and from after school until 6:00 p.m. in each elementary school.

Centerville-Abington Community Schools provides a small school atmosphere with big school offerings and we are proud of our schools in being able to provide our community with these opportunities.
