Central Catholic High School Reviews

I absolutely loved my time at Central Catholic! I transferred to this school after my first semester of my freshman year and this was the best decision I have ever made in my life. Academically, it is extremely challenging which is rough at the time, but once I started college I was beyond prepared. The Central Catholic community is so strong and I have made friends that will last a lifetime. I keep in contact with many of my high school buddies to this day (4 years later). Their athletics program is second to none and the overall environment teaches students valuable lessons about life. Although this is a Catholic school, the teachers are very open to hearing differing opinions about religion and are accepting of all students regardless of their beliefs. Such a wonderful experience, I would choose it again in a heartbeat.

Central Catholic High School is a college prep high school in the city of Portland, Oregon. Offering competitive sports programs, a diverse culture, multiple clubs, Advanced Placement classes and caring teachers/administration. What sets Central Catholic High School apartment from others is their involvement in the community requiring each student to perform service, giving back to society. This year I am going to the Dominican Republic to help empower young girls and this time is applicable to my required service hours for my senior year. I would recommend CCHS to any high school student wanting to be challenged and stretched to be the best person you can be in all areas from academics to sports.
Central was an academically rigorous and socially inclusive school. They had top notch teachers who cared about you and wanted to help you learn and encouraged students to push themselves to succeed. Students are welcoming, supportive, and kind to one another.
