Melbourne Central Catholic is a an all around school that helps students be involved in sports and clubs while maintaining rigorous courses. There are several opportunities for students to take advantage of which leads them to leadership positions, internships, and scholarships. The staff at MCC are caring when students are having a difficult time in class. The teachers spend time before and after school to help the student understand the course better. Along with the education students are able to play different sports such as football, swimming, soccer, lacrosse, etc. The sports teams become a second family and the coaches inspire the athletes to do well in school as well on the field, track, courts, etc. There are also many clubs that students can participate in that help them go out into the community and help others which helps them learn about integrity. Overall my experience at MCC was phenomenal and I am so grateful to have attended a school that prepared me for the future!

We have 2 sons, 9th and 11th grade currently enrolled and have 2 older children who are alumni at MCC. Our experience with our older children and younger two boys has been excellent. We cannot say enough positive things about the faculty, staff, coaches, clergy, campus and numerous opportunities both academically and extra curricular. We love the faith-filled atmosphere of a Catholic College preparatory school for our children. Our older two have gone on to graduate college with bright future's scholarships and are both successful in their careers as a CPA for a large Accounting Firm and Finance Manager for an Automotive Dealership. MCC had prepared them for college as well as their career path. We have full confidence that our younger boys will be just as prepared and successful in their future due to attending MCC. This school cares about each and every one of its students. They want their students to succeed in school and in life. It is like a family here.
Melbourne Central Catholic has been an excellent start to my high school experience. During my freshman year, I noticed that there were many clubs, organizations, and sports teams to participate in. Teachers and counselors at Melbourne Central Catholic also send emails and make announcements encouraging students to get involved in clubs, activities, and service opportunities both in and out of school. One thing that excels in particular at MCC is the academics. MCC offers regular, honors, and Advanced Placement courses according to which learning track is right for each student. At MCC you don't feel like you are just a number due to interpersonal relationships formed between teachers, peers, and guidance counselors. The sense of caring at MCC is apparent both in and out of the classroom, and a faith based environment is evident.
