About

  • Whitehall High School offers an A/B block schedule with full year and semester courses. Class periods run approximately 90 minutes in length. Students select their academic and/or technical programming, which provides the optimal preparation for their goals in college, business, trade schools, armed forces, and the work force. Recommended course selections are provided by the student’s counselor. High School students may also participate in programs at LCTI while continuing to attend classes and participate in extracurricular activities at the home school.

    ACTIVITIES
    In addition to the 18 varsity sports offered at Whitehall High School, there are also over 40 different clubs and activities students can get involved in throughout the year, including a very active Student Council and National Honor Society.
