School Notes

  • Through Faith, Knowledge and Tradition, Catholic Central HS not only teaches students how to learn but how to live.  
  • Deliberately small, CCHS takes pride in offering all students opportunities to "get involved" in the numerous athletic, academic and extracurricular courses and social clubs.  A renewed commitment to the fine arts (Band and Theater), CC produces 2 theatrical productions per year and a number of band and ensemble community concerts which frequently brings the entire Burlington community together. 
  • A great way to find out more about CC Student life is to schedule a "shadow day" which takes you through the day-in-the-life of a Hilltopper while shadowing a current CCHS Student.  Contact Admissions for more information.

For the money, CC is one of the best investments in private school education in the area. It's a challenging school for students, but every student is given all the tools to succeed. With an 8:1 Student to Teacher ratio to 100% graduation rates, the faculty is a caring group of dedicated educators. It's a privilege to have worked at CC for 4 years.
