Service Program

At Catholic Central, we approach Service with the goal of making our students lifelong volunteers.

We believe that the basic purpose of the Catholic high school should be to stress the transference of learning into action as a Gospel imperative. We believe Catholic secondary education should introduce students to the meaning of Catholic Social Teaching. That awareness should lead students to a responsibility for social action within and outside the school. Our school has a long tradition of reaching out to our immediate environment to impact the lives of our Heartside neighbors. Catholic Central students are given numerous all-school opportunities to serve, and various clubs foster volunteer experiences and chances to care for those in need.

Each service initiative is researched and mentored by CC Staff.

We do not require service hours for graduation. Students who volunteer for National Honor Society or do to their own personal social responsibility are asked to log their service hours in a Google Doc for record-keeping.

Service hours are also documented for record-keeping. Each student has a Service file during their high school career.

Students may access their files at any time. Service forms are available in the Main Office or from the second-floor Service Office window.
