A Message From the Principal

Hello Cardinal CHS Families, Welcome to the 2023-24 school year! My name is Paul Gerycz. I am so excited to be the Cardinal High School Principal! It is an incredible honor and privilege to be able to serve our CHS families in this role, and I am extremely excited about this new opportunity. This year will begin my thirty-fifth year in education where I have been a principal, athletic director, teacher, and coach. My wife, Sally, and I have been married for thirty-one years. We have been blessed with two daughters, Allison and Emily. We are Ohio natives and life-long Cleveland sports fans. At Cardinal High School, everything we do is based on our core belief of Huskie P.R.I.D.E. (Productive, Respectful, Involved, Determined, and Empathetic). CHS – let’s work together to make the upcoming school year the best it can be! I look forward to sharing with you in all of the amazing experiences that are in store for us. Proud to be a Huskie, Paul J. Gerycz, Principal

A Message From the Assistant Principal

Dear Cardinal Families, I would like to welcome you all to the new school year at Cardinal Local Schools. The staff is excited to work with each and every student to help them achieve all of their academic goals. We work extremely hard to support every student and to build and develop a culture and climate of excellence. I’m proud to say that the 2024-2025 school year will be my 16th year at Cardinal Local Schools. I have been at Cardinal from the beginning, completing my student teaching here, working as a building sub, head varsity coach and classroom teacher. I am excited to begin my second year as the 7-12 assistant principal and continue to serve the Cardinal community. Education is about people, and as Woody Hayes once said “You win with people!” We value communication, collaboration and the connections we make in our community. Please reach out to us at any time and GO HUSKIES! Proud to be a Huskie, Brian George, Jr/Sr High School Assistant Principal
