|Philosophy of Central Catholic High School|
Central Catholic High School, founded by the Marist Brothers of the Schools, participates in the educational ministry of the Catholic Church.
Its purpose is threefold: to have students develop a relationship with Jesus and bear witness to His message, to build a community that respects and promotes the dignity of every person, and to help students develop their God-given talents and use them in the service of others. The school, inspired by the spirit of Saint Marcellin Champagnat, the founder of the Marist Brothers, seeks to emulate the role of Mary through the nurturing of youth by a caring faculty and in the showing of a special concern for the less fortunate.
To achieve these ends, Central Catholic's college preparatory curriculum and its extra-curricular activities are designed to foster the spiritual, moral, intellectual, emotional and physical growth of the whole person. Central Catholic promotes a respect for democratic ideals and recognizes the value of a student body, which respects diversity of cultural, ethnic, and social backgrounds. Moreover, recognizing that learning is a life-long process, the school encourages students to think critically and exhibit a willingness to help create a world, which is just and respectful of all God’s creation. Central Catholic High School is fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.
|Marks of the Marist Student|
As Marists educators who follow in the footsteps of Saint Marcellin Champagnat, we are called to evangelize and make Jesus Christ known and loved through the complete education of young men and women.
We accompany our students in their development as people who are rooted in Gospel and Marist values, who develop into good Christians and good citizens, “harmonizing faith, culture and life.” As such, Marist students should be:
1. Faith-filled Disciples: Marist students come to possess a strong sense of God and a personal relationship with Jesus, Mary and Saint Marcellin fostered through religious formation, a sacramental life, and prayer.
2. Empowered Witnesses: Marist students, recognizing Mary as their model and companion, become joyful witnesses to God’s love in their lives, enabling them to see Christ in others, to live simply, morally and with integrity, respecting all of life and creation.
3. Agents of Justice and Service: Marist students grow in their understanding of Catholic social teaching and stand in compassionate solidarity with the least favored.
4. Servant Leaders: Marist students recognize that they are lovingly created by God with unique gifts and talents which, through their Baptism, they are called to develop and share with the Church and the wider community.
5. Spirit-filled members of Family & Community: Marist students embody a spirit which celebrates and welcomes all.
