Central Catholic High School Reviews
Rating 4 out of 5 103 reviews
Central Catholic provides its students with an experience that cannot be found elsewhere in the city. I haven't found a brotherhood that is as strong or enthusiastic as the one at Central. It truly sets up the students for a lifetime of success.
The Brotherhood is what it's all about! Not only does this fine institution prepare boys to become young men, but also offers a rigorous academic education. This school truly shows their students how to become servant leaders in their community.
Central Catholic High School has been in my home city of San Antonio and it is full of rich history and tradition. It is an all-boys Marianist Catholic High School that promotes the characteristics of leadership, integrity, respect and etiquette. Central Catholic has always promoted the idea of the "brotherhood" which is very much existent as I have formed very close bonds with so many of my fellow colleagues. Central Catholic is also a college preparatory school and that is something that I believe the schools exhibits very well. It offers a wide variety of very challenging classes for those who want to get a real insight to what college life is like. I made the choice to take these advanced classes and I truly believe that they have helped prepare me for the difficulty of the college classes that I will be taking this year. Central Catholic also offers a wide variety of clubs, extracurriculars and activities that its students can be involved in which allows for well rounded students
Academically this school is excellent. However, if you are looking for a drug free environment this is not the place. Drugs are readily available and the administration chooses to look the other way-saying it is not the 'marianist way.'
Central Catholic High School has introduced me to some people I would consider to be lifelong friends. Despite this fact, the teachers range from amazing to dis satisfactory. The diversity of students is very poor as there are only 3 Asians in our class of 135.
Would of liked more involvement from counselors for college help. Great school atmosphere, teachers and administrators. Other families we know at other private schools had a lot more involvement from counselors helping with college. A few deadlines were missed because a transcript wasn’t send or failed to get right back with us.
Central Catholic High School is everything and more. It is definitely true that you go in as boy and leave as a man.
The close-knit community of Central is as great as it can get, I have learned s much from going to school here and have been taught many important things that I can utilize as a man. I would change how many classes we have a day.
It is a school driven by the core values of the Marianist. The staff as a whole is amazing, you can have great student teacher bonds. The school is very excellent with its aid for students who will take the SAT, as they offer Saturday SAT practices and classes. The counseling is excellent with an open door and smiles to help a student from personal issues to academic issues. I believe where the school needs improvement in is really in student discipline, it is not a big issue yet, but it is an issue. The good thing is they are working on the issue. Other than that it is an excellent school to attend. It's a school for boys as it is an all boys school, and being a kid with high levels of ADHD, it is the perfect fit as the school specializes on how to teach boys. I feel that academically I am doing better than I was in middle school.
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.
As a student at central catholic. The school is over all a fantastic school. But sometimes they underperform in certain areas.
The family you create is awesome. I wish it was a bit more diverse and had larger array of dual credit programs but overall an awesome school.
Central Catholic embodies the true spirit of brotherhood, teaches young men the tools and work ethic it takes to become a successful man, and is overall the best high school in the San Antonio area.
teachers are very well educated. welcoming environment. The facilities are wonderfully advanced in today's age.
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 .
Very good school with minor flaws. Great learning environment. Most importantly the teachers care about each individual student.
Amazing school! Incredible teachers and staff. The concept of brotherhood and the unity of the student body is executed perfectly.
Central Catholic High School is a school where anyone would want to go. Their purpose is to educate and push every single one of their students to be successful later on in life. Central Catholic is an unbelievable school, which they do their job with love and purpose. The feeling
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.
I loved the Brotherhood at Central Catholic High School. The memories I made with my friends will last a lifetime. The Marianist principles taught at Central Catholic guide students into becoming faith-filled Catholics.
