Founded in 1853, the Pottsville Area High School offers a comprehensive program for approximately 1250 ninth through twelfth grade students residing within the city limits as well as in neighboring communities and townships.
It is approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Education and is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools.
The school building, with its Italian Gothic brickwork, retains its architectural and historical integrity while housing modern facilities such as four science labs, a planetarium and observatory, four computer labs, three art and two music studios, and two gymnasiums. The library has a collection of 10,000 volumes and more than 40 magazine subscriptions and access to resources throughout the state through computer systems. A formal 1500-seat auditorium and a little theater are unique features of the building. Within the district complex are tennis courts, athletic fields, and a sports complex including a natatorium.
