The Aramark Program
Parents can work through this program to earn money for their son's tuition. "Primarily it helps pay for our child's tuition. The group that Central has is very congenial. We help each other out and we have fun! We enjoy each others company as a Central Catholic Family." -Homer Rivera (son is Class of 2010, with 2 other sons having graduated from CCHS as well)

Nick Joyner selected as Semifinalist in 2015 National Merit Scholarship Program
Senior Nick Joyner has been selected as a Semifinalist in this year’s National Merit Scholarship Program. He is one of 16,000 named from across the country. Honorees are selected by the score on the PSAT in their junior year.
Nick came to Central Catholic from St. Anthony Catholic School. He describes his decision to enroll at Central. "I wanted to go to a high school were I could take advantage of diverse academic and extracurricular offerings and where I could build friendships," said Nick. His favorite subjects are English, Latin, and Journalism. It is no surprise to learn that someday Nick would like to study communications and journalism in college. He is applying to several universities including Columbia, University of Texas, Princeton, and Stanford. Nick has not fully decided on a profession, but states that he is interested in law, public policy and diplomacy.
Aside from succeeding in the classroom, Nick is very engaged in a number of activities. At Central, he edits the Pep newspaper and the Anthology magazine and is a member of the academic team. He is on student council as senior public relations officer and plays varsity soccer. He has served as president of Latin club for the past three years. Outside of school, Nick interned in a metabolic engineering lab at Rice University and at the San Antonio Current as a digital media intern and blog writer. He has volunteered at the Baptist Medical Center, at Spay-Neuter-Inject-Protect of San Antonio, and at Gemini Ink Literary Arts Center.
Paula Joyner, Nick's mom, is very proud of her son. She states, " We have seen Nick work hard to take advantage of the educational and extra-curricular opportunities and achieve goals that will benefit him not only in his high school years, but in college and beyond. We are very thankful for the special teachers that have positively influenced him over the years."
