Central Catholic High School is not only a school, but it is a place where one can become closer to God, while also becoming brother's for life with the other students. The all-boys environment gives a sense of accountability and responsibility to each and every student, as we must watch out for each other in everything we do. The culture of the school is full of pride for Central Catholic, as we have a storied football team as well as an up and coming soccer and hockey team. I cannot say enough about Central, it is truly a school that makes boys, men of faith, scholarship, and service.

I came to Central Catholic in my junior year. I was hesitant about attending an all boys school, however I have had an exceptional experience. This is a great school located in a great location. My courses are challenging, teachers are engaging and helpful and there is a wide array of athletics and clubs. The school is located between Carnegie Mellon and the University of Pittsburgh. additionally our partner all girls school is just minutes away.
Thus far, I have had an incredible experience here from academics (top-notch in the Honors/AP classes), to Extracurriculars to the life-long relationships that I have created with peers and teachers alike.
