My son originaly wanted to attend another High School with his friends. The day before he started his Senior year he said he did not to go. I asked why and he said "Because being a Senior means I will have to leave next year and I don't want to leave." That says it all. This school is a community, not just a place to learn.

I found this school to excel in all facets: academics, athletics and social. My two boys were solidly prepared for college and participated in a variety of extracurricular activities. The school fostered a strong sense of responsibility and brotherhood and as a result, bullying and boorish behavior is kept to a minimal. As they say" Teaching goodness, discipline and knowledge."

Catholic Central has exceeded our expectations in every way. The academics are second to none, and the academic as well as the administrative teams are also top notch. They are true partners with the parents and the students feel a strong brotherhood as part of CC.
