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!

Coming into CCHS my freshman year, I was miserable. All I remember thinking was "I can't believe I have to spend the next 4 years here!" I was upset about leaving my friends behind and not knowing anybody at this new place. But as the years went on, I learned to love CCHS. Now that I'm almost halfway through my senior year, I'm so incredibly thankful for the time I've spent here. The atmosphere and community at Central Catholic is just amazing, we're like a family here. The teachers here are always trying to help you be the best version of yourself, they even go out of their way and use their own personal time to help you. We also have students here from all around the world! Some students come from different countries and some live close enough to the school they just walk! I believe Central Catholic has 100% prepared me for college and for the real world. I wouldn't trade the memorable 4 years I've spent here for anything.
Overall, my high school experience has been great. The staff at my high school works their hardest to help the students. When the staff is motivated, the students get even more excited to participate in school involvement clubs, extracurriculars, sports, and academics. The high school does an amazing job at preparing students for college. However, there is little diversity. The majority of the high school population consists of white or Caucasian people. Central Catholic is working on getting more diversity to the school.
