This school is top notch. The faculty is amazing and cares very much about each student. My three children have thrived at this school and my last is almost there. I can not wait to see the opportunities that are available to him there.

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.

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.

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!

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).

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.

As you begin to evaluate schools, keep these five basic questions in mind.
The Cristo Rey Network of schools currently comprises some 26 schools in 17 states and the District of Columbia. Truth is they are just getting started.
Teaching gifted children requires deft handling. These children need intellectual and sensory stimulation. But they also need guidance and careful nurturing so that they grow up handling their special gifts and themselves appropriately.
