    My time at Central Catholic was amazing! The teachers are truly passionate about educating the whole student and preparing them for life outside of the classroom. Part of the values of CC education is a community spirit where every parent, alumni, and friend of Central Catholic is still involved daily.
    The abundance of activities for every person is astonishing: JROTC, Robotics, Athletics,

    Central Catholic as a freshman and sophomore was a truly remarkable experience. But after the first two years, most of the best teachers, counselors, and administration who embodied what it means to be a Marianist left the school. Their absence was felt almost immediately since the school hired incompetent new administrators. They brought in mediocre teachers at best, and the whole school culture changed for the worst. The school started to focus solely on the image of the school and started focusing less on what made central such a remarkable institution in the first place. Now the school just seems like another regular school, whose focus is on admittance numbers and the image of the school. The counselors care more about test scores than on the growth of the student through actual counseling. That is not to say central is a bad school. It still has the best alumni core than any other school in the city, it still has passionate students who strive to become better men.
    At Central Catholic, boys from diverse backgrounds are able to cultivate a unique bond of brotherhood while receiving a valuable Marianist Education. The parents and alumni of Central Catholic High School are very active groups that help Central achieve its mission.

    Central Catholic parents have a long history of working with the school’s administration, faculty and staff to create an educational environment that exhibits the Marianist characteristics of openness, hospitality, graciousness and faith.

    As students graduate, they become a part of a special brotherhood of nearly 10,000 alumni living around the world.
