Catholic Central High School Reviews

Catholic Central High School is a college preparatory institute that provided a lot of guidance in helping me prepare for my college career. While high school can have its flaws, Catholic Central is perhaps one of the most outstanding places of learning in the state of Michigan. Their attitude, culture and atmosphere create a place where one not only learns as well as they can, but it also allows for the students to grow as people. Speaking for my own experience, I had enjoyed my time here and will miss it dearly when I graduate this upcoming spring season.

Nothing I would have changed about my high school experience at CC. The faculty is amazing and the support is unbelievable. There are countless community outreach opportunities available and very powerful retreats. The academics are challenging, but CC continues to excel on standardized tests and countless other areas. So many resources are available to students. It really is a family here.
Grand Rapids Catholic Central offers an environment that fosters accountability, pushes students to succeed, dream, and grow, and most importantly strives to empower students both personally and academically. With instructors who inspire students and a culture that is unique in the bond it builds amongst its members, GR Catholic Central is a fantastic institution.
