School Reviews

This Is a great school. I very much enjoyed my time here. Teachers were very nice and out going and you got to know them on a personal level. I enjoyed my classes, however, they lack some of the more specialized classes and the selection is decent. Plenty of extra curricular opportunities to participate in. I felt like I was part of a family and not just a school. The only major problem is the guidance department. They severly lack when it comes to helping you in the college application process, especially if you''re looking to go to a prestigious university. The dean of students helped me with the process a ton more than my guidance counselor and it wasn''t even her job. Overall I would still recommend going here for high school but you just have to find someone other than the guidance department to help you with getting into college.

Central has provided 3 generations of my family a quality education. I would highly recommend Central Catholic to anyone.

Central is an AMAZING school. The teachers are extremely intelligent and encourage open discussion and growth in their students. I learned so much from some fabulous teachers, about everything-myself, the world, my faith, my political viewpoints, etc. etc. The arts dept., while underfunded, is really outstanding-the choir/drama especially always rise above what you think is possible and never fail to impress (not to mention it was amazing to be a part of).

The teachers and rigorous academic programs more than adequately prepared me for success in college as well as law school. CCHS''s unique spiritual education (even for non-Catholics) helps form a value system which encourages a life of making positive choices and a desire to serve the less fortunate. Although the cost of the education is a sacrifice, it is well worth it!

It is truly a pleasure to teach at a school that challenges the students to strive for excellence every day. Students have many opportunities for participation in sports, the arts, and service to the community. As a faith-based school, we are also fortunate to share time for worship and prayer with the students.

For the most part Central Catholic was the best four years of my life I made a lot of friends and enjoy all the activities I took part in. I wouldn''t change my decision of going to any other school but central The education I received here was the best that I could of received and help me my first year and college. I will always be a crusader fan and can''t wait for the day that I will be able to send either my son or daughter to this high school. My four years at Central I didn''t just have friends I gained a new family.
