In addition to the online application, an applicant must also have support documentation submitted to complete his application file.

Additional Information

List of 3 items.

  • Recommendation Letters

    All applicants must submit at least two letters of recommendation: one recommendation from their current Math teacher and one recommendation from their current English teacher. Recommendation forms were sent to all area Catholic middle schools in October. If your son completes the HSPT at Central Catholic and/or submits an application to Central Catholic, Central Catholic will make contact with his middle school for official school records, transcripts and letters of recommendation. Recommendation forms do not need to be submitted when the online admissions application is submitted. Central Catholic asks for recommendations to be submitted to Mrs. Bethany Herman, Director of Enrollment. 
  • Follow up with your current Middle School for transcript requests if necessary

    Central Catholic will request 6th-8th grade records, standardized test scores, and letters of recommendation from middle schools for each student that completes the HSPT. Central Catholic encourages parents to follow up with their middle school for records, as records are needed to complete an application. Central Catholic will be in touch with both parents and middle schools if an application is incomplete or missing pertinent information.
  • Our Responsibility

    The Central Catholic High School Admissions Committee will evaluate each application with the utmost respect and fairness, as is consistent with our Marianist tradition of service and justice. We will make a decision based on HSPT scores, middle school grades, recommendation letters, and the interview (if required).
