As I transfer student, I cannot say enough great things about Central. The students and faculty have been nothing but helpful in helping ,e to adjust to my new surroundings. From ensuring my success academically, athletically, and spiritually Central has truly been an amazing experience thus far. The teachers take their jobs incredibly seriously and strive to push students to be the best that they can be. Central is not just a school, it's a family. From sporting events to retreats, Central provides various opportunities for the student body to connect with each other and be involved. I'm very proud to be a raider!

As a current junior, I feel that Central Catholic has prepared me for college. The teachers are very open about helping out students, and offer help almost 24/7. The AP classes are very challenging, but the teachers I've met are the greatest ones I've had.

On the athletics side, I play tennis. Boys tennis. Tennis is the only sport we have not shined in for a while. Still, hockey and football are a giant part of the culture here. The parting of "the red sea" and the "Raider Roller Coaster" are just two things that show off our spirit.

In the world of clubs, theres something for everyone. I basically live in band as a trumpet player, and I couldn't be happier with the friends I've made. I've made friends here that are going to last for the rest of my life. Thank you central for making me into such a great guy!

Students are required to act and dress in a respectful manner. They are given the proper tools to transition to college; which is demonstrated by their high college acceptance rate. The school provides a safe environment for students. Furthermore, Christianity is part of their teachings throughout the four years and ethics and morality is reinforced. Also, students are required to complete community service hours before graduation thus providing the opportunity for students to see and help those less fortunate. Central Catholic has provided its students with a top notch education while simultaneously instilling a larger picture of how this knowledge effects people and the world around them. They feel empowered to make positive change and take responsibility for those less fortunate and thereby promote goodwill.
