OUR PROUD TRADITION
Central Catholic was founded in 1956. For the past 45 years we have been proud to serve the Grand Island area. Central Catholic began as a four-year high school for grades 9-12. Grades seven and eight were added later to form a junior-senior high school. In 1997, a $1-million building expansion was completed and sixth grade was added to the school. Today, Central Catholic consists of a middle school for grades 6-8 and a high school for grades 9-12.
Central Catholic is fully accredited by the Nebraska Department of Education and North Central Association of Colleges & Schools. All members of the administrative and teaching staff are certified by the State of Nebraska.
Central Catholic is primarily a college preparatory institution. The school seeks to meet the needs of all students through a diversified curriculum. At the middle school level emphasis is placed on learning basic skills and exposing students to a wide variety of learning opportunities in a highly structured environment. At the high school level a broad range of courses are offered to meet the individual needs of students. Religious instruction is an integral part of the curriculum for both middle school and high school students. To promote moral and spiritual development, Christian principles based upon Catholic Tradition are incorporated into every phase of daily school life.
