Support Our Mission
Central Catholic High School makes Jesus known and loved. Our mission is to educate the whole person for college and for life, with particular care for the least favored and those in need.
Founded by the Marist Brothers of the Schools, Central Catholic participates in the educational ministry of the Catholic Church. Its purpose is threefold:
- to have students develop a relationship with Jesus and bear witness to His message,
- to build a community that respects and promotes the dignity of every person, and
- to help students develop their God-given talents and use them in the service of others.
The school, inspired by the spirit of Saint Marcellin Champagnat, the founder of the Marist Brothers, seeks to emulate the role of Mary through the nurturing of youth by a caring faculty and in the showing of a special concern for the less fortunate.
To achieve these ends, Central Catholic's college preparatory curriculum and its extra-curricular activities are designed to foster the spiritual, moral, intellectual, emotional and physical growth of the whole person.
Central Catholic promotes a respect for democratic ideals and recognizes the value of a student body, which respects diversity of cultural, ethnic, and social backgrounds.
Moreover, recognizing that learning is a life-long process, the school encourages students to think critically and exhibit a willingness to help create a world, which is just and respectful of all God’s creation.
