Central Catholic High School, in addition to being an excellent academic institution, holds its greatest attribute in the strong sense of community the school has. Students, parents, alumni, and staff alike are all a part of the big Central Catholic family. School spirit also helps to unify the CC community. There is often a great turnout for football games, in particular the homecoming game and the Holy War against rival Catholic school Jesuit HS. Other sports programs, in particular the volleyball and boys' cross country teams, are very strong. In terms of academics, classes are pretty small (about 25 people), so you get plenty of teacher attention and support. There are many opportunities to challenge yourself through a selection of honors and AP courses. CC requires community service of all its students, which is beneficial because students learn the value of helping the community. Fundraisers such as the Food, Blanket, Coat, and Penny Drive are enthusiastically participated in by all four classes. Overall, CCHS is a great place to learn and grow, academically and spiritually. It really helps you to prepare for college and life. I would recommend it to anyone applying to HS.
