As our district's traditional comprehensive high school, Currituck County High serves approximately 1,000 students in grades 9-12. We provide each student an extensive selection of courses and academic programs to choose from, including college preparatory, career and technical education, as well as honors and advanced placement classes. Our instructional day operates on a 4x4 block schedule with 85 minutes per class period. In addition to traditional instruction on the 4x4 block, a Power Hour offers students a 30 minute lunch period and 30 minutes for other instructional opportunities, including tutoring, clubs, special topics, and/or engaging in physical activities or socialization.
We have had a wonderful opening to the 2018-2019 academic year and would like to invite our parents to our annual Open House from 5:00 until 7:00 p.m. on Monday, September 10. This event will allow you to meet teachers, tour our building, and learn more about the wide variety of extracurricular activities available to our students. There will also be a session facilitated by our gifted education coordinators at 6:00 that evening. We hope to see you on the 10th at the proud home of the Knights!
NOTE: IN LIGHT OF THE RECENT THREAT POSED BY HURRICANE FLORENCE, THIS IMPORTANT EVENT, WHICH WILL STILL RUN FROM 5:00 TO 7:00 PM, HAS BEEN RE-SCHEDULED FOR NEXT THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 27. HOPE YOU CAN JOIN US! As this is the dinner hour, we have also made arrangements through our Booster Club for both BJ's Carolina BBQ and Arctic Shivers to sell food items until 6:30 that evening.
In light of the devastating impact of Hurricane Florence on the Carolinas, the NCHSAA Board of Directors has approved changes to the calendar for fall sports and the fall's playoff schedule. The most immediate impact of this change means that the make-up football contest vs. Edenton Holmes, originally slated for tomorrow evening, will now be played on Friday, November 9, with kickoff at 7:30.
