Centralia District and Curriculum
The school districts curriculum follows the Illinois Common Core Curriculum, which is a refereed curriculum based on international standards so that graduates are competitive on a global level. In math and science classes, students build on solid, foundational concepts with real-world applications and demonstrations. The focus is on fewer topics in a year, and on covering those topics thoroughly so that students are fully prepared to move on. Teachers try to apply lessons to the physical world when possible so that students have a deeper understanding.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Centralia District Curriculum
In English and humanities classes, the focus is on analytical skills. Students read primarily nonfiction and writer primarily argumentative essays to analyze their reading. They gather, analyze, and evaluate evidence to support their theses when writing. Students are also expected to develop active listening skills and observational skills. Students are encouraged to take an active role in their own education in order to develop an appreciation for learning.
It is hoped that these techniques will instill a life-long love of learning in students, whether they continue to post-secondary education or enter the workforce directly after high school. Students also learn to manage their time effectively and to set goals, and not only achieve them but exceed them. Community service activities offer students a chance to gain project planning and management skills and have been incorporated into the broader expectations of the curriculum.

Chalk Talk: Early Applications
There are several types of college applications with early deadlines for competitive prospective students who are interested in getting a leg up. Colleges promote these early deadline applications heavily, sending out mail and email announcements asking students to apply early, offering incentives and promises of early notice. Some will even waive application fees if applicants apply early. There can be several advantages to early applications, not least of which being that colleges tend to inform early applicants of acceptance decisions early. Another advantage is that students who have been accepted early have the opportunity to receive financial aid decisions earlier, apply for housing earlier, and be finished with the process earlier. Of course, having to complete applications early can be stressful, but the payoff at the end could well be worth it for some applicants.
