Central Tech School is a high school in Erie, Pennsylvania in the United States. The attendance is roughly 1,000 students. Currently it is the Erie School District's regional vocational-technical school. Central offers 21 Career and Technical courses. The schools mascot is a Falcon.
When occupancy of newly built Academy High School was delayed in the fall of 1919, those students shared facilities with Central through June 1920. Students from Academy and Technical Memorial merged into Central for the 1992-1993 academic year when those schools closed.
The Central Tech soccer team, an association football team, has been coached by Bob Plonski for over 15 years. The Class of 2014 is the school's most successful, having won a share of the Region AAA title in District 10, during the 2013 season. Major players of that class included Dawson Baloga, Logan Henry, Jasmin Husenovic, Zhafar Dzhabarov, Alex Yacobozzi, Jason Aguirre, and Andrew Delgado.
