Out of all of the high schools near Wheeling, CCHS is by far the best choice in the area. Is it perfect? No, but this school allows you to prepare for college and chase your dream. In all honesty, beware of the History and English department here. The Math, Science, and Religion are the best academics you can achieve in the tri-state area. Every Thursday, our school goes to mass. As of today, our football team is back-to-back State Champions. No matter what you are chasing: academics, sports, religion, arts, etc. Wheeling Central Catholic High School is the best choice.

I liked Central Catholic High School because it was a small school that allowed me to obtain a good education that prepared me for college. I enjoyed playing baseball for three years during which we played in the state championship game one year and semifinal game one year. There was opportunity to take advanced placement classes and receive college credits. It was a family type atmosphere of people. Most of the students all knew each other and the teachers all knew their students, unlike the local public school. I am thankful for the education I received at Central Catholic High School.
I like that no matter what I can be myself. It was really hard for me to fit in during middle school so I thought during high school I wouldn't meet any friends. When I had gotten to central I met so many friends and people who truly understand me and that is what makes school a lot more better not only the people, but also the teachers who have the biggest heart here. They are like your other parents when you need help.
