During the 2016-17 school year the Tide Lines newspaper staff is planning to rejuvenate its products by expanding into the realm of digital media. You can follow their progress by referring to the new web presence at Of course equipment for the digital media project is expensive so the Crimson Tide Foundation has made this donation to get the project rolling. If you would like to be a part of keeping the project rolling please donate by using the button on this website or send a check to Crimson Tide Foundation, P.O. Box 62, Pottsville, PA 17901.



All students are now being encouraged to get their news from the Tide Lines website. This will allow information to be delivered in a more timely manner. There will no longer be a print newspaper; however, the newspaper will be reformatted as a news magazine that features Tide Lines, Wavelengths and ETC content. This will allow students to pursue long-form stories and tackle broader issues. Once we are up to speed, new content will also appear online on a daily basis. Wavelengths will no longer be mailed directly to homes within the district. Content that was formerly in Wavelengths will be online and in the news magazine. ETC will also be rolled into the new website and news magazine. 
With the help of the Crimson Tide Foundation, video cameras will soon pop up around the school campus to capture the great things that our students are doing. This video will then be posted on the Tide Lines website.

Our Vision

Alumni associations throughout America have done a great service for their universities’ graduates for many years. These groups help us reconnect with our classmates, establish important personal connections in the workplace and keep us informed of important events occurring at our alma maters. Alumni associations are also an opportunity for individuals to build their personal legacy and improve the experiences of the students who follow them by giving back to the institutions that helped them along their journey through life. By serving both graduates and their sponsor institutions, alumni associations perform a great service to the community. Although formal alumni associations are not as common at the High School-level, we believe this Foundation will provide a great service to Pottsville Area High School graduates, the City of Pottsville and our beloved “Castle on the Hill.”


Our Mission

Through community organizing and fundraising efforts, the Crimson Tide Foundation brings together Pottsville Area School District residents, alumni, and friends to improve the academic experience of current and future students. The ultimate goal of the Crimson Tide Foundation is to strengthen the Pottsville Area School District community by reuniting and supporting our alumni while more effectively preparing current and future students for the challenges they will face upon graduation.
