Central Catholic is proud to offer enriching academic programs that provide additional resources and challenges for our students. Our signature programs, the Brother David S. Baginski, FSC Scholars Program, the Engineering Institute at Central Catholic, and the Bishop McDowell Program, provide opportunities for students to be challenged and to grow.
The Brother David S. Baginski, FSC Scholars Program offers an engaging intellectual forum to highly motivated students. These students become part of a community of peers and faculty advisors, and meet regularly through seminars, mentoring, programmatic trips, symposia and a Senior Thesis project. At its core, the program is designed to encourage students to understand the intrinsic connections between their intellectual development and their responsibilities as global citizens. Eligible sophomores must have taken a minimum of three AP or Honors courses, demonstrate an ability to work at a minimum GPA level of 3.5, commit to three years of foreign language study and demonstrate innovative ability, intellectual curiosity and interest in social causes.
