As the principal of the Upper Dauphin Area High School, my goal is to create a safe learning environment, help students imagine their greatest potential and support them in realizing it.  With this objective in mind, I commit to:

  • Making student-centered decisions.
  • Ensuring that every Upper Dauphin High School student has an adult advocate at school.
  • Communicating clearly and regularly with both students and their families.

I welcome feedback.  If you have ideas, questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me by visiting, calling or emailing.

Go Trojans!

The Upper Dauphin Area High School has a broad selection of both required and elective courses that it offers to its students each year.  This includes English, mathematics, science, social studies, business, information technology, world languages, building construction trades, diversified occupations, wellness, family and consumer science, industrial arts, art, music and agriculture and natural resources.  The guidance counselors work with students each spring to schedule classes for the next year and ensure that students have the proper credits needed for graduation.  Scheduling occurs over the summer and students usually receive their schedules in late July or early August.  Students wishing to make adjustments to their schedules may schedule an appointment with the guidance counselors beginning in mid-August.  Complete details about the courses offered may be found in the UDAHS Program of Studies (2023-24).
