State College Area High School

Our Mission: To prepare students for lifelong success through excellence in education


School Play Performance

“School Play,” a touring play that aims to raise awareness and spark discussion about school funding, takes the stage 7 p.m. Oct. 8 in the State College Area High School North Auditorium. The State High Thespians and high school Learning Enrichment program are sponsoring the performance. School Play logo

The play, a collaboration between two playwrights and the nonprofit Public Citizens for Children & Youth, is based on more than 100 interviews with Pennsylvania teachers, students, parents and politicians. A discussion will take place afterward.

Admission is free, but donations will be accepted for the Sue Sheridan Fund to provide extracurricular and community educational opportunities to students in financial need.

Homecoming Dance October 3

This year's Homecoming Dance will be held at the Mount Nittany Middle School Auditorium on Saturday, October 3, from 7-10:30 p.m.
