Shadow Day

Individual Shadow Days are scheduled throughout the year between October 2017 and March 2018. Your student will experience a day-in-the-life-at Central Catholic as they "shadow" a Student Ambassador through their class schedule. A limited number of spots are available for each Shadow Day so please register to reserve your spot as soon as possible. Our available Shadow Day dates for the 2017/ 2018 school year are listed below. Please select the date you desire and complete the registration form to reserve your spot. If the event is full, please select a different date.

Students shadowing must follow the dress code. They do not have to wear CCHS shirts, but must be in a collared shirt and follow all other dress code guidelines. Students arriving at Central Catholic to shadow who are not in dress code will not be allowed to stay for the day. Please follow this link to view our Dress Code Student/ Parent Handbook 2017-2018

Private Tours

The importance of visiting a campus cannot be overstated enough. Flyers, brochures,  web pages, and videos cannot replace experiencing first-hand the academics, athletics, and social life of a school. Seeing for your self offers the best insight of all.

We invite everyone to visit us, ask 
questions, and get to know our family! We provide private tours and encourage parents to visit during the day to experience Central Catholic's learning environment. Tours are available most mornings by appointment, but accommodation can also be made for afternoon visits. 

Please contact us directly at (209) 524-9611 and we will happily work with you to arrange a tour that fits into your schedule.


Welcome and thank you for your interest in Central Catholic High School! As you begin the exciting process of choosing a college preparatory school, we encourage you to visit our campus, talk to our students, faculty, staff, and administrators. We are most eager to share our rich history of academics, arts, athletics, and co-curricular programs with you.
You will witness first-hand how our students lead with confidence and integrity. You will see how our remarkable faculty and staff make this happen each and every day. We do this because we are committed to providing the best education rooted in our Core Values of Faith, Academic Rigor, Family, Community, and Integrity.
At Central Catholic, we provide many opportunities throughout the year for our prospective students and their families to step onto our campus and visit with us. Here are some of the events that we hope to see you at:

  • Fall Open House
  • 8th Grade Day

  • Fall Placement Testing
  • Scholarship Workshop Night
  • (4) Winter/ Spring Shadow Days
  • (3) Winter/ Spring Placement Testings
  • Spring Open House

We believe that best way to select the right school for your child is to study the written materials and websites carefully, visit the campus, and above all, talk to current and former students as well as their parents. As you go through the process of selecting the best option for your child, always feel free to reach out to us with questions. It is our sincere hope that  you too will come to see that Central Catholic graduates are academically-prepared students, spiritually-developed persons, socially-responsible leaders, and globally-conscious citizens.
