High School Admission and Transfer Information

The Columbia Board of Education has developed a Designated High School Policy (5117) to provide an equitable and deliberate process for Columbia-resident, high school age students to select and attend a designated high school.

Columbia residents enrolled in grade eight at Horace W. Porter School receive high school admission information through presentations and correspondence managed by the School Guidance Counselor.

Columbia residents who are enrolled in grade eight in a private elementary school or who are home schooled and approaching high school-age are asked to contact the School Guidance Counselor to receive high school admission information.

Columbia-resident, high school age students who are already enrolled in a designated high school, private high school, or magnet/charter high school and wish to transfer to a different designated high school, magnet/charter high school are asked to contact the Superintendent, Laurence Fearon ( to receive high school transfer approval.

The Columbia School System offers three designated high schools for matriculation in the 2015-2016 school year:

  • Bolton High School
  • E.O. Smith High School and VOAG (Region 19)
  • Windham Technical High School

    Windham High School is no longer a designated high school. In accordance with the Memorandum of Understanding between the Columbia Board of Education and Windham Public Schools signed on February 10, 2014, Columbia students enrolled in Windham High School on that date will be allowed to complete their high school education through graduation.  In addition, any siblings of a Columbia student already enrolled in Windham High School who is in grades 5 - 8 will have the option of enrollment in WHS.

Lyman Memorial High School is no longer a designated high school. Columbia VOAG students may enroll in the Lyman Memorial High School VOAG program with the approval of the Columbia Board of Education.
