Benefits of an All-Boys Education
Central Catholic’s mission is to educate young men spiritually, academically, physically, and socially. As the only all-male Catholic high school in the region, Central Catholic has been fulfilling its mission of graduating well-rounded young men committed to the values of faith, scholarship, and service since 1927.
Benefits of a Single-Gender School
Central Catholic believes that single gender schools are places where students go primarily to learn, and that the all-male environment allows for easy and effective implementation of teaching strategies geared for teenaged boys. Central Catholic focuses on the educational needs of young men and creates expectations that allow them to reach their potential. Central Catholic students consistently earn standardized test scores above the overall and the all-male average on both the state and national level and students receive scholarships to many prestigious colleges and universities.
A Sense of Brotherhood
In addition to excelling in academics, the young men of Central Catholic enjoy coming to school and feel comfortable interacting with their peers and faculty in an all-male environment.
Students build lasting friendships while continuing to foster the traditions and values characteristic of Central Catholic’s heritage. Whether learning the school’s fight song, attending a class retreat, participating in a service project or being part of the enthusiastic cheering section—all of these events and many more create lifelong memories and lasting friendships. Central Catholic’s strong alumni presence and the legacies established through its generations of graduates from the same families serve as testament to the strong bonds fostered by the school.
A Commitment After Central
Simply put, Central Catholic boys love their alma mater. Central Catholic provides an environment where the faculty, staff and peers clearly care about them. Students are free to be themselves, unencumbered by the fear of embarrassment or compulsion to show off in front of the opposite sex. Every young man here is truly a member of the community.
Interaction with Our Partner School, Oakland Catholic
Central Catholic is conveniently positioned in the same neighborhood as Oakland Catholic, making young women a regular presence on our campus for a variety of events and activities. Joint efforts between the two schools include participation in the Central Catholic band and The Masque Drama Club. Oakland Catholic students also join Central Catholic students in the classroom to take classes that are not currently provided to Oakland Catholic students, such as AP Art History. Central Catholic also hosts dances and other social events that provide opportunities for interaction.
