Bradley Central High School is home to thousands of proud alumni who are "Bradley Bears-Black and Gold" for life!  They help and support our current students in so many ways, including the many sports and extracurricular activities that continue to build upon a long and great tradition of excellence.  It is the commitment of our entire school family-faculty, staff, alumni and community-to provide our students with an opportunity to achieve their full potential as educated citizens.  Our children are the future of Bradley County, and at Bradley Central High School, we are working to help them be the best they can be!
