Jesus Christ is the reason for Catholic Central. We offer optional daily Mass in our Chapel and celebrate All-School Mass monthly. Our engaging Theology curriculum, daily prayer, Rosaries, Holy Hours, and community service reinforce the importance of living our shared faith. Annual retreats and optional Kairos for our juniors and seniors offer additional reflection time for our students. We provide strong role models, opportunity, encouragement, and support for your son along his faith journey so that he will continue after his graduation.

16 AP, 16 Honors Classes, and dual enrollment opportunities allow students to challenge themselves at a very high level. Our Learning Strategies Center and Intervention Accommodations Program (IAP) provide support to students with learning challenges.
