Catholic Central Mission Statement

Catholic Central High School is an inclusive community rooted in the Catholic faith that prepares servant leaders for a Christ-centered life.
We build everything — education, athletics, and community — on the foundation of the Gospel. Our leadership is committed to this calling, working to grow and strengthen a community of believers that support students’ quest for knowledge and faith. Chapel is open to all, as is the message for hope and salvation.
