Central Catholic High School is where tradition meets innovation. Our rigorous academic programming, dedicated student support services, high expectations, wide variety of athletic and extra-curricular offerings, and sanctioned daily independence focus on developing the whole student while embedding in them the values, morals, responsibility, and discipline that will carry into the rest of their lives. Located in the heart of Oakland, Central Catholic provides additional educational experiences for students to benefit from at the University of Pittsburgh, Duquesne University, Carnegie Mellon University, the Carnegie Museum system, Phipps Conservatory, the Pittsburgh Zoo, as well as nearby downtown Pittsburgh. Since 1927, Central Catholic has fulfilled its mission of building Men of Faith, Scholarship and Service.
The 2019-2020 application is now available for incoming freshmen.
