Central is a phenomenal school with superior academics and a traditional approach toward building men of character. The faculty, as a whole, is exceptional and its program is rigorous.
Review Central Catholic High School
Central Catholic was a great experience for both my boys. I believe that CC at time has an unfair reputation of catering to student athletes. Both my boys were NOT athletes and excelled tremendously at CCHS. I feel that it's the parents that bring this reputation to the school not the boys. Regardless of being an athlete or not, these boys feel a sense of community and brotherhood and always support their teams whether participating or not. CCHS has a tremendous reputation around the world and being an alumni is an honor. Central guys always have their brothers' back and help and support each all the time.
I have spent my four years here at Central catholic. My time here has been relatively enjoyable and the faculty and student body are all serious, professional, and personable.
