Principal's Message

Chris Crain
Caverna High School Principal

Welcome to Caverna High School---Home of the Colonels!  As a 1991 graduate of Caverna High School, I am thrilled and honored to serve as your principal. The Caverna family is special to me; a small community allows parents, students, teachers, and community members to develop close knit relationships and work together to accomplish the goals we have set forth. My goal, as principal, is to always keep our students' best interests at heart when making decisions, to never become complacent, and to continually strive for academic excellence. 



At CHS, our goal is for all of our students to be college, career, and LIFE ready when they depart from CHS.  We will strive to accomplish this goal by building genuine relationships with students and their families, setting high expectations, providing rigorous instruction, and offering a wide variety of extracurricular activities and courses that focus on the content and skills they need in order to be prepared for the next level of learning.


We have an excellent faculty & staff this year that has a passion for teaching and loves the students they teach.  We will work hard to provide the best opportunities and to push them to be their very best, academically and socially.  In addition, we strive to prepare our students through a challenging curriculum, including a variety of STEAM courses, Project Lead the Way Engineering and Pre-Med programs, project-based learning, and by offering AP, dual credit, online classes, as well as a variety of CTE programs.


Our partnerships with local businesses and industries are thriving and the support we receive is outstanding.  Our school’s doors are always open to guest speakers who are willing to share information or insight about real world experiences to educate and inspire our students!


We invite you to visit our campus and contact us if you have any questions.  We look forward to the opportunity to speak to you about the new and exciting things happening at CHS.  You may also follow us on social media to see what #theCave is all about!
