    About Owego Apalachin
    At the Owego Apalachin Central School District, we have a high school (Owego Free Academy), a relatively new middle school, and two elementary schools. The district is in the concluding stages of rebuilding nearly half our buildings lost after the flood of 2011.

    The new state-of-the-art Owego Elementary School welcomed home our students in January 2016. Our new administration building went online in June 2016, and our new maintenance/storage facility is expected to be completed in the summer of 2017.

    With a district enrollment of more than 2,100, nearly 50 percent of our most recent graduates attend four-year colleges, with another 34 percent attending two-year schools. Nearly all of our graduates received Regents or Regents with Advanced Designation diplomas.

    We routinely celebrate the accomplishments of our well rounded students, who avail themselves of many opportunities in the fine arts, STEM, and 22 varsity sports, with some achieving regional, state, and even national acclaim.

    We have a truly outstanding music department, where students begin jazz studies in fifth grade, alongside award-winning choral and concert band programs.

    In 2014-15, our varsity student-athletes earned OFA recognition as a “New York State School of Distinction,” the only one in Section 4, with every varsity team achieving a 90-plus GPA. With a good start toward that goal in the fall of 2016 seasons, they're on their way toward that accolade again.

    Our Project Lead the Way sequence provides a four-year program which builds on traditional math and science courses and introduces students to a rigorous pre-engineering curriculum.

    And our instructional and informational technology is among the best in the region, as our faculty’s use of technology to enhance teaching and learning has opened new avenues to classroom success for our students.
