Visit Central Catholic
Central Catholic offers many opportunities for students and their families to visit our campus! Whether your son attends our annual fall Middle School Tailgate or participates in a Shadow Day, we hope the time spent at Central Catholic will prove how we develop young men of character through faith, academics, and leadership.
Shadow Day at Central CatholicWe welcome students to join us for a Shadow Day to experience a day in the life of a Button! Our Shadow Day Program allows students in 8th-grade to shadow a current freshman. Students who wish to transfer to Central Catholic from a different high school will shadow a student in their current grade level.
We invite shadow students with their parent(s)/guardian(s) to join us for a light breakfast, welcome presentation, student panel, and a school tour prior to shadow students participating in classroom shadow time.
