We are committed to the Central High School experience by promoting the strong traditions of the school, preserving the rich history of the past and supporting its present and future endeavors.

The Vision of the Alumni Association is to cultivate a partnership of alumni, families, students, teachers, staff and supporters with a unified goal of perpetuating the tradition of excellence and the legacy of Omaha Central High School.

The Alumni Association exists to preserve Central’s heritage and spirit with these ongoing programs:

  • Creating and maintaining display cases in the Courtyard displaying artifacts that illustrate Central’s unique history
  • Collecting books written by Central alumni, with second copies given to the school library
  • Alumni website to help you stay connected to Central, past and present
  • Making authorized alumni apparel available online and at special events
  • Representing CHS alumni on the Central High School Foundation Board of Directors
  • Special projects, such as the Central history timeline that hangs in the Courtyard today

The Alumni Association meets monthly on the second Monday of the month from September to May. Meetings begin at 6:00 PM at Central High School. Meetings are open and alumni are welcome to attend. This is a great way to learn about the inner-workings of the Alumni Association, get involved, share your thoughts or just listen. We’d love to see you at our next meeting.
