    Hello Central High School Families,

    It is my honor and privilege to serve as the principal of Central High School.  I received a B.A. in Biology from Christopher Newport University along with teacher licensure; a M.S. in Curriculum and Instruction from Walden University; and a M.Ed. in Educational Policy, Planning, and Leadership from the College of William and Mary.  

    I hope everyone is enjoying a wonderful, relaxing summer.  It has been a busy and productive time at Central High School.  The teachers and staff have worked hard to prepare for our students.

    I look forward to meeting and getting to know each of our students.  One team, one mission – what does that mean?  We will provide quality, individualized education while challenging each student to reach their highest level of achievement. 

    I am proud to announce that Central High School remains fully accredited by the state of Virginia!  Thank you to our returning teachers for all of their efforts and also a warm welcome to new faculty and staff! 

    Congratulations to our KQPS Teacher of The Year, Mrs. Whitney Curle!

    Mr. Justus, our new Assistant Principal/Athletic Director and I both appreciate the opportunity to be a part of the Royal Tiger family!  We are looking forward to an exciting year! 

    Central High School’s faculty and staff are dedicated to enabling our students to become effective, productive, and contributing citizens in our competitive global society.

    The first event will be Open House on Tuesday, August 28, 2018 from 5:30 to 7:30 PM. 


    Enjoy the rest of your summer and Let’s Go Royal Tigers!


    Best Regards,

    Preston L. McKellar, Jr., M.Ed.
