Principal’s Welcome


Welcome to the website of Calhoun High School – Home of the Sandcrab Nation! As Principal of CHS, I want to share with you what makes this campus the shining star of the Golden Crescent.

Calhoun High School serves over 1,200 students with a faculty and staff of 113. We serve students across the entire county of Calhoun. Students live in Port Lavaca, Port O’Connor, Seadrift, Point Comfort, Olivia, and Port Alto, among other areas within the county. Athletically and academically, Calhoun High School has many accolades in which we are all very proud.

Calhoun High School has been district UIL Academic Champions for ten of the last eleven years. We have also been State Math champions on five occasions! Our students scored above the state and national average on the ACT test.

We offer many courses ranging from Advanced Placement (AP) classes, robotics, dual-credit classes through Victoria College and TxVSN and advanced welding to name just a few. The last graduating class earned $1.4 million in scholarships to institutions across our great nation. Athletically, we are consistently in the playoffs for football, basketball, softball and many other sports.  Our Sandies are the State Powerlifting Champions for eleven consecutive years! Our Choir has been sweepstakes champions for 29 plus years. Our Band program is consistently winning sweepstakes. This is a small testament to our dedication to competition and our winning attitude whether it is on the field, court or classroom!
