My daughter just graduated from CCC and had a wonderful experience. She loved the IB program. The teachers are very devoted to the kids.

I have a student who will be a senior this year. He has had a stellar education to this point. He is enrolled in the IB program, CCC is the only private school in Pinellas to have this program. He is very well rounded. He is in several sports and is on several committees and honer societies. The school has a very strong college graduation rate. I highly recommend this school. I do wish they had a stronger push towards missions.

Fantastic academic and sports programs! So glad we made the switch from public to CCC. This school is what education should be about: all students expected to go to college and the development of quality character traits.

I graduated from CCC two years ago and my experience was fantastic. The teachers truly care about their students, and are always willing to help with coursework, but are also available to listen to any other problems students might have. Like every school, there are not so excellent teachers, but I honestly believe that the good outshine the bad. In addition to academics, the school felt like a home to me because it was so tight knit.

My daughter attended this school. We found many teachers to be mediocre (a few were excellent). The administration was horrible. Unresponsive, lacked basic Christian principles, conceited, lacked professionalism. Far more interested in attracting students than helping those already enrolled. The Catholic affiliation is simply a marketing ploy, stay away!

I didn't like this school. The school is too religious for me. The students were not very social and the staff was very chaotic and unorganized.

Both of my children attend Clearwater Central Catholic HS. They both have been very happy there. Most of the teachers are very good and caring. Some of the teachers are outstanding. The sports and extracurricular activities that are offered are good and varied. They have a beautiful new state of the art theatre, but the drama department is small. The productions for the last three years have contained only 2- 15 actors per performance. The only music offered is guitar lessons. The academics are very good. They offer a good number of AP and Honors classes. They are the only private school in the area to offer an IB program. They also have a 'resource' program for children with learning disabilities. The campus is nice and well kept. The overall atmosphere is positive and safe. It is mandatory for parents to volunteer.

I wouldn't recommend this school at all. The only thing good is they're food and education.

Principal is the greatest she is made of steel to make CCC run. Some teachers are so-so, others are excellant. My problems are the everyday hassels with the school when my daughter is sick, doctor's appt or taking time off for her outside activities. When enrolled, CCC was very aware of her situation. She is an A-B student, not on drugs and a great kid. Better monitoring of school property, always deserted when kids are in class.

This school has a good environment for students to learn. The teachers are friendly and willing to help students in any way possible. The student participation and enthusiasm in extracurricullars is apparent. i highly recommend this school though it's a bit pricy.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
