Greenville Central School District has a rich history as an extension of one of the earliest chartered schools in New York State. The Greenville Academy was established by the Regents of the University of the State of New York on February 27, 1816. Although the Academy served local students, many students boarded with area families in order to complete their studies. Martin Van Buren, who would later become the President of the United States, made similar arrangements for his son to attend the Greenville Academy.
Greenville Central School District, the first centralized school district in Greene County, opened its doors to students in 1932. This historic event took place at the height of the Great Depression, and allowed 458 students, who had previously attended one-room school houses, access to modern learning opportunities.
The Board of Education, faculty, and staff recognize the exciting history of the school district and the community and are committed to preparing students for the 21st century.
