    At Central Catholic the atmosphere and setting is very welcoming and positive. It is an all boys private school that teaches its students about brotherhood and forms boys into suitable men of society. My experience at this school so far has been great! I've been involved in football, baseball, and JROTC and my experience with those sports and nothing but good memories. I have nothing bad to say about my school and wouldn't change anything .

    Central Catholic is an all boys college prep school. Here exists a proclaimed "brotherhood" of students, yet that goes unpracticed or undefined for many students. Central Catholic calls itself a Religious institution, yet that is far from the truth. There is no emphasis on the catholic aspect of this school, as masses and other faith based activities held are "textbook" and "un-engaging" for students. The religion classes are considered as classes to slack off in, and just seen as an easy grade. And in my times from being a freshman to being a senior, I have seen little change in how this institution conducts itself. This is not a private-Catholic School, this is a public school with the price tag of a private one.
    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,
