Since 1852, Central Catholic's tradition of academic excellence has been rooted in the Marianist philosophy of a well-rounded education. A truly enriching high school experience encompasses many elements of learning that may take place outside a typical classroom setting.
A typical day at CCHS allows students to explore both academic and extracurricular areas of interest from the chemistry lab, to the ceramics studio, on the basketball court, or on the JROTC practice field- all of which build character and leadership skills.
Central Catholic’s athletics program encourages students to practice Marianist values by demonstrating sportsmanship while striving to attain competitive excellence. With a variety of sports offered, athletics provides growth promoting experiences, prepares students for success as they develop competencies through collaboration with others to achieve personal, and group goals.
Central Catholic offers its students many different means of developing their religious faith and practice. For example, students take religion classes for all four years. In addition, students participate in Mass monthly and live out their faith through required service projects. Students have opportunities to enhance their faith through informal faith sharing and structured retreats.
