Mr. Brandon Taylor

It is my pleasure as principal of St. Clair County High to welcome you to our school.

As the oldest high school in the county, we have a tradition of excellence that dates back to the school’s founding in 1909. Governor Braxton Bragg Comer chose Odenville as the site for the county’s first public high school, and Judge John W. Inzer laid the cornerstone in 1908. Since those humble beginnings, our school has produced state champions, soldiers and sailors, professionals, and servant minded citizens resolved to improving this great state and country in which we live. A portion of this long line of Saints can be seen in the composite photographs that line the hallways of the school to this day. Each year, a new group of Saints is added.

It is with this storied history in mind that I look forward to an exciting year filled with opportunities and success! The faculty and staff here at SCCHS are dedicated to providing our students with the tools and opportunities to achieve their goals. As a group of dedicated educators, we will work tirelessly with the students, parents, and community to make sure we are supplying each student with real-life skills, up-to-date technology, and competitive opportunities for our students to make a true impact on our state. Our desire for SCCHS students is that they are able to enter the workforce, college, or the military with a leg up on the competition. Through teamwork, effort, and dedication, we believe all graduates of St. Clair County High School can achieve at the highest levels.

The future of St. Clair County High School is as bright and encouraging as the July day when the first stone was laid. It truly is a great day to be a Saint!
