Charlestown High School gives students the opportunity to develop close relationships while our rigorous academic offerings prepare them for college and/or high-paying careers right after graduation. Through a partnership with Ivy Tech, students can earn more than 60 Dual Credits at no charge, leaving high school with a college degree. CHS is one of the only Project Lead the Way (PLTW), a nationally recognized pre-engineering program, sites in Southern Indiana, with pathways in Engineering and Biomedical Science.
Their state-of-the-art science labs, athletic turf fields, and various updates throughout the school give students all the tools they need to succeed.
CHS also boasts 19 varsity sports, an award-winning choir, a student-run TV and radio station, a marching band, and an excellent theater department.
Calhoun Construction served as the General Contractor for the CHS Tennis Complex. This project converted several vacant lots into the Charlestown HS Tennis complex. The complex has 8 full-size tennis courts. The tennis courts are complete with custom CHS logos and pirate heads. The complex also has roughly 1000 sq ft of observation deck for spectators. Below the observation deck is a large storage room, as well as men’s and women’s restrooms. Some additional construction features on this project were the custom ornamental metal entrance gate & fence. This project was wrapped up in July of 2021.
