Centennial High School has received the College Success Award which honors schools that excel in ensuring students prepare for and succeed in college. 

Launched by GreatSchools.org, the leading nonprofit provider of trusted school information, the 2019 College Success Award recognizes 1,722 schools in 25 states. Award-winning schools have a successful track record of graduating students who later enroll in two- or four-year college, are ready for college-level coursework, and persist on to their second year.

College- and career-ready graduates are critical to fueling the U.S. economy as 65 percent of jobs will require a post-secondary degree by 2020. Centennial is one of the approximately 20 percent of eligible schools in Minnesota that won the College Success Award.
