Principal's Message

Dear Griffin Families,
Principal Swilley
I would like to welcome all of our new and returning students! I am looking forward to another productive and successful school year.  We are glad to welcome our Griffins on campus and will continue to ensure that quality teaching and learning occur every day for every student. Our theme for the 2022-23 school year will be: Griffins Unite! Rebuilding our Village, one piece at a time! This theme encompasses the realization that we must unify and bring back the village mentality to prepare our Griffins to navigate school, as well as their lives outside of school. We need ALL stakeholders involved. We know that Fairfield Central High School is destined for amazing accomplishments and significant milestones this school year. The gifts and talents of our students, combined with the dedication and passion of our teachers, allow us to strive for excellence. Excellence is not the result of a good intention or clever slogan. It is not a value that is easily achieved. It comes from a strong desire to improve how we do things when we see something we can do better. 
Fairfield Central High School will continue as an AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) site. We are excited about our continued efforts schoolwide to help our students “OWN” their learning. We made great strides last year, and we have a lot to be proud of. A few of our highlights include 26 graduates of Midlands Technical College with Associate Degrees in Science and/or General Studies and Pre-Nursing Certificates, State and National Accolades for our Griffin Beta Club to include a State Vice President, increase in the number of students earning college credits, as well as increased AP passage rate. I know by continually improving our school-community relations, more positive gains are inevitable. Find any successful school, and you will also find parents and community members who are involved and supportive of the school. Your support is integral to our success. This community recognizes the value of educational and extra-curricular activities; therefore, our school expects our students to excel both inside and outside of the classroom. I hope you are proud of our students, as they reflect these expectations through their character and commitment. 
Dr. Tracie Swilley
