There are several ways to learn more about Central Catholic and to get to see our school:
8th grades students are always welcome to join one of our Freshmen on a Shadow Day. It's a great opportunity to see what life is like as a Central Catholic student.
Parent Open Houses
Look for more information about these in the next edition. We've asked 8th grade parents who also have students at Central Catholic to host open houses in January for interested families. Our Principal, a faculty member, and me will join the parent hosts to help answer questions and give you an overview of our school.
