School Notes

  • Lima Central Catholic participates in the state of Ohio College Credit Plus program  in cooperation with Rhodes State College and St. Rita's Medical Center. The program is of interest to many different types of students within our system but focuses largely on students who are interested in allied health careers. This includes nursing, dental hygiene, emergency medical services technology, medical assisting technology, medical imaging technology, nutrition and food management, occupational therapy assistance technology, physical therapy assistance technology and respiratory care technology. Essentially, this program offers a block of college classes to students in both their junior and senior year. Upon graduation from LCC, the student will have completed 25-30 hours of college level course work qualifying them to directly enter any of the above fields at Rhodes State College. Proof of acceptable work done in this program may result in a full scholarship to finish any of the above programs at Rhodes State College. St. Rita's Medical Center funds this scholarship program and provides employment for the student upon completion of the program. It is our goal to maximize the student learning experience by maintaining the highest quality Catholic Education possible. This goal can only be achieved when those who truly want to help make a difference, invest their time, talent and treasure in the Mission and Vision of Lima Central Catholic. Any gift at any level will make a difference. Your investment in the students, is an investment in the future. Thank you for helping us make a difference!
