Central Catholic High School Reviews
Rating 3.97 out of 5 87 reviews
The teachers changed a lot and were sometimes not very good, but other than that it was great. The people in my class were amazing.
What I liked about this School is how it's really prepared me academically for college. What I'd like to see change is the diversity and the school culture.
CC is such an amazing school. It is a family and the teaches invest into the students. I was lucky enough to have Mr. Yonker who is the best AP teacher they have.
Central Catholic is a small school that continues to involve the community and has become family. I would recommend it to anyone on a path to college.
The teachers are not that open minded and they always have their favorites. If you are not rich or you don't live in the country you really cannot survive here. If you want to go to a top tier world renowned university do not come here. There is no college prep here, and the administration would rather focus on catering to the agriculture students than to those with a curiosity in science. They literally let a hate crime go under their noses to appease the rich parents.
I really enjoy the home and family feeling you get when you go to Central Catholic High School. Because it is a private Catholic high school, the numbers here are limited. There are roughly 380 students who attend. And if you were to ask anyone I’m sure they could name at lease 20 students from each class.
As most private schools, there is a bit of coddling. I didn't attend this school for my entire high school career, but I am glad that I was able to spend my senior year there because the community is pretty incredible. The counselors really care about you, and most of the staff and teachers want to help you. Some kids are a bit spoiled, but most are pretty cool and overall it's a decent school. Just needs a pool for water polo.
Since my freshman year, I have loved attending Central Catholic! This school has not only helped me become a better person academically but spiritually, socially, and emotionally. By having the WE mentality, I have become a strong-willed individual, who is unafraid of what lies ahead and defeats anything thrown at me. I couldn't have become the person I am today without the support of the place I'm proud to call my high school, Central Catholic.
I love the small class sizes and the student teacher relationships. I came into Central Catholic my Junior year as a transfer. I transferred to Central Catholic after seeing the potential the school offered to help me reach my future goals.
I am a Freshman at this school and it’s been great. At most schools freshman get treated so awful and unfair but at Central Catholic it is different the student life is the best everyone is treated respectfully and fairly and the school is smart about situations and decisions in those situations.
I really love how small the school is because it allows for a strong sense of “family” between the students. This school provides a safe and happy environment that provides all the essentials that a student may need to be both spirtually and academically prepared for the next stages in life.
Central Catholic High School’s mission is to witness to the Gospel, while developing the spiritual, academic, and social character of students. I appreciate Central Catholic for furthering my faith in God from a divine being to a father figure. The academic rigor at Central Catholic has helped me get into University of the Pacific, where I plan to enroll at the Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry then the McGeorge School of Law. I am involved in 21 extracurriculars including 4 sports (golf, basketball, track and field, and cheerleading) and 5 leadership positions including ASB Senior Class Representative, Key Club President, and Treasurer of Hispanic Youth Leadership Council Culture Club. The small community allowed me to know all students by name and to take advantage of these opportunities that made me into the spiritually developed, academically prepared, and globally conscious young woman that I am today.
I have had such an incredible four years at Central Catholic High School. I have been involved in many things on campus and it has been so easy to get involved. I love the small knit community and how the faculty and staff care for me. I am sad to be leaving Central Catholic but I know that they have prepared me in the best way possible.
Not every teacher at the school is capable of teaching well enough to prepare students for college. Teacher retention is low due to low pay so some aren't even credentialed fully to teach. Only a few sports' teams are treated with respect and many are given lesser treatment i.e. poor equipment, coaches or no facilities on site. Students don't want to participate in those teams so they tend to not do well.
Central Catholic's emphasis on "it's a We thing" created a great community and family-like feel. Although the academics were not amazing, the atmosphere made up for it. If you put the effort in no matter where, you will come out successful. The nurturing atmosphere helps you to accomplish your goals, and with hard work, prepares you for college.
I love being a student at Central Catholic High School. The atmosphere is amazing and it truly embodies the "WE" mentality they claim to have. Everyone treats each other like family and is comfortable talking to almost everyone since it is such a small school. The way the schedule is set up allows for many after school/before school opportunities to get one on one time with every single teacher.
I have been going to central catholic for only 5 months now and it is one of the top private schools in California. I've really improved my grades and focus being around kids that are so focused and ready for the next level pushes me to be the best of my ability. The only thing I would have to say that need to be added is a mandatory athlete study hall this could help 3 sports athletes like my self manage time better and get work done before practice also you can get help from tutors that are in the study hall in classes you don't axel in.
