Principal's Message

Dr. James Davis, Principal at CFI

James Davis

Welcome to the Laurel County Schools Center for Innovation (CFI).   Our team of faculty and staff are prepared to deliver a rigorous and challenging learning environment for students.  We have developed a school culture that embraces the concept of student engagement, inclusion, and collaboration.  Our highly qualified faculty members with content specializations in English, math, or technical education are able to deliver their instructional content while also integrating components connected to the students career pathway.  We utilize best practices in teaching that incorporate state-of-the-art technology within the curriculum.  Our instructional team employs real-world applications to enhance learning through project development to include the three stages of project management such as “design, create, and demonstrate.”

We are a student-centered school and will provide every student with the opportunity to challenge themselves academically.  We will encourage students to pursue excellence in their work.  Our school will serve as the catalyst to help students become college and career ready.  We not only have high expectations of our students, but we also hold ourselves to the same standard of excellence.  It is our responsibility to provide the learning experiences necessary for academic growth and personal development.  We expect our students will represent themselves well in future endeavors in part because of the important learning experiences they had as students at the Center for Innovation. 

We ask you to join us and support our efforts to become a “school of opportunity” for students.  Student success is our primary focus and helping each of them to set and achieve goals is our responsibility.  We operate under the premise and slogan that, “We Aim High at the CFI”!


With positive regard,

James M. Davis, Ed.D.
