The difference between a good school and a truly great school is its ability to help transform a student’s dream into a reality. Catholic Central’s superior academics, high test scores, scholarships to the finest colleges and universities, and nurturing atmosphere help each and every student develop a path of success. Each day, dedicated teachers lead their classrooms through faith, knowledge and service, which exemplify the goal of our Catholic high school and the School Sisters of Notre Dame, who founded our institution 100 years ago.
In order to continue providing quality programs and the tradition of excellence, Catholic Central High School depends on your tax-deductible donation to secure the futures of Hilltoppers for years to come!
Catholic Central's Development Office is responsible for bringing in vital funds through the development and implementation of effective and efficient strategies. These vital funds are collected through individual donations, grants and fundraisers to help bridge the gap between tuition and the actual cost to educate a student. It is important to understand that every dollar makes a difference in the lives of our students, faculty and staff! Volunteers also play an important role in building a foundation of support. As the saying goes, “It takes a village to raise a child”, and a commitment of time and energy can go a long way.

Our CC Alumni are encouraged to become involved with their alma mater to ensure the continuation of our Catholic high school where you remain a valued member of our extended family. Remember that you still play an important role in our school TODAY through your success and experiences. Our graduates will soon become our leaders for tomorrow.
