Drama[edit]

The Corcoran Association of Student Theatre (commonly referred to as C.A.S.T.) is an extracurricular performing troupe run cooperatively by faculty advisors with the input of a student executive board. The Corcoran Association of Student Theatre prides itself as one of the only high school programs in Central New York to boast a full length theatre season, on par with the offerings of many local community and semi-pro theatres.[5]

Athletics[edit]

Corcoran participates in the Section 3 region of the New York State Public High School Athletic Association in the Central New York Counties League (CNYCL) (for most sports) in the AA division. In August 2007 Corcoran and 12 other high schools in Section 3 left the Onondaga High School League (OHSL) and joined the newly formed CNYCL.
