Invest in Our Students

A Catholic education is a gift that transforms lives. The educational experience at Catholic Central is rooted in the Dominican Pillars: service, prayer, study and community. These pillars ground our students in strong Catholic values and instill in them a desire to seek the life God is calling them to lead. With your support, Catholic Central students will become servant leaders living a Christ-centered life.

At CC, every gift counts, no matter the size. Gifts of time, leadership, prayers, and resources all make a difference. Your support ensures that we can hire and retain talented and committed teachers, provide tuition assistance, and excel in all  aspects of a Catholic education, from academics to extracurriculars.

Give with Impact

The Catholic Central Fund

Gifts to the Catholic Central Fund enable CC to be CC – a school dedicated to offering a dynamic, well-rounded Catholic education. The Catholic Central Fund supports the most critical needs of the school including tuition assistance, mission-centered programming, and teaching/learning.

The Mind, Body, Spirit Fund

We want all Catholic Central students to experience everything that our school has to offer, in and out of the classroom. While the Catholic Central Fund offers tuition assistance to those in need, sometimes students’ needs go beyond tuition assistance: a dance ticket, a yearbook, a band trip. To serve some of these needs, we created the Mind, Body, Spirit Fund.
