Central Catholic was founded by Brother Florentius and the Marist Brothers of the Schools in 1935, to provide boys from Lawrence and vicinity the previously unavailable opportunity to receive a Catholic high school education.
Central Catholic High School, established and conducted by the Marist Brothers of the Schools, is dedicated to the mission of Saint Marcellin Champagnat: to make Jesus known and loved among young people.
Preparing hearts and minds for college and for life, Central Catholic promotes the spiritual, moral, intellectual, emotional and physical growth of the whole person.
Students are readied to assume their place as competent and compassionate members of the church and the human family.
Faculty and students form a Christian living community in which the dignity of each person is respected.
Central Catholic shows particular regard for students who are educationally at-risk and economically disadvantaged.
Every student is encouraged to develop their God-given talents and use them in the service of others, particularly the least favored.
Central Catholic High School, licensed by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.
