The Future Elkhart High School
Another question we’re commonly hearing is about the unification of Elkhart Central and Elkhart Memorial high schools, and what it means for the future of our district. We’re excited to be leading the state in the development of wall-to-wall pathways. Our six schools of study will provide students with an opportunity to identify their interests and learn to their passion, in a meaningful way for their learning style.
Each school will contain a business advisory group who will help determine curriculum to ensure students are learning material that is relevant for their future careers. This model is incredibly successful at our Elkhart Area Career Center.
For additional information about our Six Schools of Study (Arts & Communication; Business and International Relations; Engineering, Technology, and Innovation; Health & Public Safety; Human Services; Natural Resources), please visit EHS: 2021.
In Fall 2021, the Indiana Department of Education, the Indiana High School Athletic Association, and the Indiana State School Music Association, will formally recognize Elkhart High School under one school number. Students in grades 9-12 will remain at their current high school locations (two campuses) during the 2020-2021 school year. In Fall 2022, all construction will be completed and the transition to Elkhart High School (grades 10-12) at the current Elkhart Memorial campus will be completed, with all students studying within one of the six Schools of Study. The Freshman Division will be located at the current Elkhart Central campus.
