College Bound

Here at Central Catholic High School we pride ourselves on being a college preparatory high school. Not only do we offer challenging courses, but our faculty offer college-like settings that help our students prepare for and be successful in college. Every year, 97-100% of our students go on to college. Those students who do not immediately go to college have chosen to honorably serve their country in the armed forces or to serve the world by doing mission work.

“Central Catholic prepared me in many ways for Santa Clara University. I started the school year stronger than others because I was constantly keeping up with my agenda, an organizational skill I received throughout my years at Central Catholic. At CCHS, the teachers encourage their students to communicate with them; my continued success is due to the fact that I feel comfortable approaching my professors, either through email or during their office hours. Lastly, Central Catholic taught me to get involved. Being involved at school helped me meet people with similar interests and have fun participating in something I enjoy.”
