Allentown Central Catholic High School Reviews

When I first walked into ACCHS as a freshman, one of the first things I heard from the staff and student leaders was that we were a family. Originally, I saw this as poor marketing. Now, going into my senior year, I can now share that same statement out of sincerity to any new student. It truly is a family. Students involved in sports show up to support the drama and dance productions, some even participate in them as well. Even though the students come from all ethnicities and religions, everyone works together to share about their beliefs, respecting the opinions of those who don't agree. The academics are challenging, demanding that a student take charge of their own education and apply themselves in preparation for college. ACCHS is truly a family. Teachers take time out of their day to listen if you need to talk and will support you through anything. I would highly recommend ACCHS to any hardworking student ready to start a new chapter of their life.

ACCHS is unlike any other high school in the Lehigh Valley in that it gives you more than just a stellar education. As a proud alum, I can attest to the uniqueness of this school. Throughout my time at Central, I completely fell in love with it. The environment there is so welcoming. I still look back on my time at ACCHS fondly, even as a current college student. The teachers at Central really care about the students and the education I received at the school prepared me for my rigorous college courses. The small class sizes were key. I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to attend Central Catholic because I had such an amazing four years. The memories one makes at Central are priceless. I was able to really grow in my faith as well because of the events that are held there- 40 Hours, Kairos, etc. Incredibly proud to be a Viking alum. The energy at this school is indescribable. Definitely worth the tuition.
Central was a great school for me! It helped me to branch out and make new friends that I probably wouldn't have met if I went to the nearby public school. It was my home for four years and I met great people there including the teachers and administration. Although it was a bit pricey I recommend it for anyone who is Catholic and would like a unique private school environment.
