SMCC is a great place to achieve academically, athletically, and grow in your faith life! I have always wished to preserve my relationship with God while receiving a quality education, and SMCC has been great in terms of building its curriculum off of faith.

The teachers and staff are all extremely caring individuals who truly want all of their students to succeed. The rigorous courses have definitely prepared me for college. The college councilors are outstanding and do everything they can to help students make it to college. My only complaint is how lax the school can be when punishing students for serious things like using homophobic slurs on a team group chat. All in all, it is an amazing school with amazing people.
St. Mary Catholic Central is well-known for its academically challenging and faith-based environment. Students attending this high school will receive a high-quality education that will benefit them for the rest of their lives. Also, the school is highly prestigious and can play a part in getting into a student’s dream school or other employment opportunity. Although, this institution is a private school that can be financially taxing. In addition, there is not a large variety of classes that you can take at the school.
