Catholic Central High School's Full Profile



Catholic Central High School says

Catholic Central is a private College Preparatory School for boys (9-12) which was established in 1928 by the Basilian Fathers. The school has a Chapel, three science labs, two art rooms, a music room, computer labs, computer connectivity in every room, two gymnasiums, a 4,500 seat athletic stadium with a turfed field, and several practice fields.

The school environment is religious, with at least 8 priests on campus, prayer to start the day, retreats, daily theology courses, and community service. Students utilize iPads instead of textbooks, and the academic programs have produced more National Merit Semifinalists over the past 30 years than any other Catholic High School in Michigan.

In addition to the religion and academics, CC students put a tremendous amount of effort into their extracurricular activities, producing more than 55 State Championships in Athletics, three Nationally ranked Academic teams, a state-leading musical program, several State Championship robotics teams, and about 30 additional student-run clubs.

Mission Statement

Catholic Central High School recognizes parents to be the primary educators of their children and collaborates with them in helping their children to learn and grow in the Catholic faith. We provide a safe and challenging environment where mutual respect and high expectations are maintained through the active engagement of students in the learning process. The young men of Catholic Central learn holistically the ideals of the Basilian Fathers - goodness, discipline, and knowledge - so that they may become productive members of the Church and society
