Welcome to Martha Layne Collins High School where our mission is to graduate every student college and/or career ready through positive collaboration, systems of support, and a commitment to excellence for all.  We, the staff of MLCHS, are excited to welcome you to the 2017-2018 school year, and we look forward to a wonderful year of learning and growing together.

We believe in the African proverb, “It takes a village to raise a child.”  As a result, we will work in partnership with those individuals most important in your personal lives to ensure your success.  Whether your ultimate goal is college or the workforce, our guiding goal is to grant you a diploma indicating you have what it takes to be successful in society and in life.  We want you to have as many options as possible for future success.  We want you to be a contributing member of our democratic society.  We want you to undertake inspired learning, leading, and living. 

To prepare you for life after high school, we commit to provide a positive, safe, nurturing school environment where you can grow physically, emotionally, intellectually, socially, and spiritually.  We know you will experience struggles along the way; therefore, we commit to provide systems of support to help you achieve success.  Our purpose and our intent is to provide opportunities for you to have a full and enriching high school experience.  Making this depends some on you too.   WE NEED YOU TO BE COMPLETELY ENGAGED!  We need YOU to engage in academic work in the classroom.  We need YOU to take advantage of new and expanded academic opportunities like 3PT/Innovations and dual credit through JCTC.  We need YOU to engage in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities because they help you achieve academic success.  WE NEED YOU TO BE FULLY COMMITTED TO YOUR LEARNING AND PERSONAL SUCCESS!

Your years at Martha Layne Collins High School will be some of the best years of your life, so make the most of them!  I expect you to do your part to make our school the best high school in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.  It will take collaboration, character, and commitment to make this happen for we are stronger together than we can ever be apart. 

Again, welcome.  I look forward to a great school year.  GO TITANS!
