The Century Senior Party Committee would like to invite the public to an open house on Saturday, June 10th from 3-5 PM at Century High School.


Each year the Century Senior Parents host an all night lock-in at the high school for our seniors to celebrate in a fun-filled, safe environment.  Throughout the night there will be a variety of games, food, entertainment, and prizes.  Early in the planning, a theme is selected and is kept secret from the students.  Over the next few days, the school will be transformed into this year’s theme.  


We invite you and your families to stop by Century High School to walk through this year’s transformation and to get a glimpse of the night we have planned for our Seniors!


Sorry, no Seniors will be allowed on the tour. Remember, it is a SURPRISE for them!

A Note From the Principal

Dear Century Families,

I want to address a social media post that was visible last night and some of our students or families may have seen this post. It was brought to our attention and we quickly worked with Rochester Police Department (RPD) before the start of school this morning. This is a police investigation and I am unable to share information specific to the investigation. Safety of our students and staff is a top priority and our students and staff were never in any danger.

We will continue to work with our students on good digital citizenship, including appropriate use of social media. We take these matters very seriously and will continue to educate our students.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me.

Chris Fogarty
