Students have the opportunity to challenge themselves with college-level courses offered by our extensive AP Program with the College Board and by our dual enrollment programs with Syracuse University and Southern New Hampshire University.
Central Catholic High School boasts an extensive, strong, and highly successful Advanced Placement (AP) Program.
CCHS has been chosen by the College Board as one of the select schools in Massachusetts and New Hampshire to offer the AP Capstone Diploma.

- 63% of seniors took at least one AP exam.
- 78% of our students taking exams earned a score of 3 or better, far exceeding both state and global averages.
Our students’ achievement is the result of their talents and dedication as well as the outstanding faculty mentoring they receive.
