Getting Started
Central Catholic High School is an all-boys Catholic High School serving grades 9 through 12. Admission to Central Catholic is achieved through satisfactory test results, records, and recommendations.

The application process begins in the fall of the 8th grade year for those applying for 9th grade. For those seeking to transfer into the 10th or 11th grades the process begins in the spring semester. Central Catholic does not allow mid-year transfers or senior year transfers.

The admissions process consists of four major steps: Inquiry, Application, Registration, and Course Placement.

Transfer Students
Students applying for the tenth or eleventh grade will be evaluated on the basis of their report card, standardized testing, and recommendations from their present principal. An interview may also be required. Students applying for the 10th or 11th grade must have a 75% or higher in all of their academic courses to be considered for admission.

Central Catholic does not accept senior transfers. Students may not transfer into Central Catholic once the school year has started. Transfer Applications are available on this website from February to July. Visit the Application Materials page for more information.

Decision letters are mailed in early March. Accepted students are given the opportunity to register for the freshman class at this time. Registration involves the completion of all enrollment forms and fees.

Students who apply and are accepted to Central after the initial enrollment period will be placed on a waiting list to be evaluated on a rolling basis.

Course Placement
The Course Placement process begins in May of the 8th grade year. The results of the Placement Test and other additional testing may be used during this process. Course lists and Summer Reading requirements will be mailed in early June.
