Celina Independent School District is a public school district based in Celina, Texas (USA).

In addition to Celina, the district serves a portion of Weston. Located in Collin County, a small portion of the district extends into Denton County.

Celina High School's mascot is the Bobcat and the high school is best known for its dominating football program – it has eight state championships, tied for the most among 11-man programs in Texas (2007, 2005, 2001, 2000, 1999, 1998, 1995, and 1974). The 1974 title was in Class B (now Class A) and was a co-championship with Big Sandy High School (one of the all-time dominant teams) while the 2007 title was in Class AAA; the other six titles were in Class AA.

Celina High School is also home to many other fine programs; the baseball team has also won a state title (2002 in Class AA).

The Celina High School Band particularly excels at concert band. It has received eleven consecutive sweepstakes awards and recently won a double state championship in the Outstanding Performance Series (OPS), also earning many other awards in both concert and marching band, including a trip to the UIL State marching competition in 2005.
