Our unique, student-centered schedule empowers students and encourages deeper inquiry and more meaningful learning time.
We’re a school rooted in the Catholic faith and grounded in the Dominican traditions of study, prayer, community, and service. We are proud to be the oldest co-educational diocesan Catholic high school in the nation, founded in 1906.
At Catholic Central, students find the right mix of high academic standards, individual attention, and opportunities to engage in a full spectrum of student life activities, from arts and athletics to clubs and organizations.
Our house system celebrates community and tradition, bringing students together in new and different ways than typical high schools.
Parents and students love the supportive, family-like environment found in the CC community and across our campus.
Exceptional academics. A student-centered schedule.
Community-building House System. Arts, Athletics, Ministry, and more.
This is not your ordinary high school…this is the way school should be.
At Catholic Central, students are exposed to the highest-quality college preparatory curriculum in an academic environment built on faith, collaboration, and individualized support of every student. We strive to develop our students in every way: physically, emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually. We are proud to be the first STEM certified high school in Michigan.
Annually, the vast majority of students participate in a sport, strong evidence of our commitment to providing ample opportunities for student participation, and our desire to develop our student-athletes to their fullest potential. As part of the whole person education, athletics teaches fair play, balance, life lessons, and builds character.
We believe that every student is entitled to a well-rounded education that includes exposure to a variety of opportunities in the visual and performing arts. A foundation in the arts develops cognitive, analytical, problem-solving, and task completion skills, and provides an understanding of how the arts relate to history, society, and cultural awareness.
Finding meaning in life is both a challenge and an opportunity. We believe that real meaning only comes through an unwavering, faith-filled relationship with Jesus Christ and a desire to serve others. Empowered by their faith, Catholic Central students develop their minds, talents, and passions, and enter the greater world ready to transform it.
The House system provides a unique opportunity for every student to belong to an ‘immediate family’ within the greater school community. Characterized by virtue, character formation, and camaraderie, it helps to deepen relationships and provide opportunities to belong, have fun and grow, while amplifying our mission.
