Central Catholic High School
- Central Catholic High School is a college preparatory school educating in the Marianist tradition young men from diverse backgrounds for success through the development of scholarship, leadership and moral character.
- Our aim to help the students explore the relationships between faith and the political, economic, and social environment in which they live their faith; to help the student with an assessment of contemporary experience and its meaning; we also help the students acquire critical knowledge and skills for learning, self-development and leadership; to promote students' abilities to participate in interdisciplinary dialogue; to provide opportunities for students to prepare for future professional preparation.
- We promote and encourage a free exchange of ideas and sincere communications within the school's greater community and encourage quality interaction between students and faculty.
- We provide students with opportunities to develop a concern for others and the improvement of society; to facilitate the involvement of all in community-service activities; to witness Roman Catholic faith with a concern for social justice, dignity, and equality of opportunity; and to foster participation in and service to the school and other Catholic communities of the area.
