A Message From the Principal

Greetings and welcome to the Bolton Central School website! Please use this website as your first source of information and happenings at school. Check back regularly to catch up on the latest news and events. Also be sure to follow our facebook pages at “Bolton Central School” for all things education, and “Bolton Central School Athletics” for all things sports. 


These past couple of years have presented a mountain of challenges. It amazes me, but does not surprise me, that we were able to hold school in person all last school year. It seems that nothing can stop the Bolton Central School family from coming together and making things happen! Like our district mission statement says, “We strive for academic excellence and remarkable experiences in a supportive community, which will exceed all expectations”, the faculty, staff and I work hard to make a memorable and highly effective learning environment for our students, even in the toughest of times. I am very proud of our “family” for coming together and rising to the occasion. 


We continue to offer a top notch education in our small district. The academic programs at Bolton are challenging and engaging, while paying close attention to our student’s interests and needs. We are pleased to be able to offer students several Advanced Placement (AP) course opportunities, as well as plenty of college credit bearing classes to get students on the path to college and career readiness. In the past two years we have added three new AP courses, bringing our total to five AP course offerings for our Juniors and Seniors. Students are also afforded a wide variety of elective courses to grow their interests, and ample support services to help all students succeed. Despite our physical size, Bolton is huge with opportunity!


It gives me great pride to lead this school into a very bright and promising future.

If you have any questions or concerns about our school or programs, please feel free to contact my office.
