Central Catholic Announces 2021-2022 Tuition,
Providing World-Class Education at Highest Value
Prudent management of the school’s finances, as well as growing our non-tuition revenue, permits Central Catholic to maintain one of the lowest tuition rates among private and Catholic secondary schools in the region.
While most private and Catholic secondary schools are increasing tuition for 2021-2022 in a range of between 5% and 9%, Central Catholic’s tuition represents an increase of just 3% over the 2020-2021 tuition rate.
School leadership is driven by one vision - to make Central Catholic more excellent in its offerings to students with each new school year.
Our efficiency with making this vision real enables Central Catholic to provide a world-class education at undoubtedly the best value in New England.
Our Centers of Raider Excellence...
Distinguished by their knowledge, passion, skill, and daily commitment to excellence...
Our faculty care deeply about their students and believe in their success.
That challenge students to develop their talents to the fullest through our innovative courses and rigorous curriculum...
Our curriculum also includes eight dual college enrollment courses and 27 AP courses. Students can get a jumpstart on college coursework and have the potential to earn college credit.
Students committed to making the world a better place...
Students develop their faith and sense of self through retreats, Campus Ministry, the One Day Service Program, the Camp Champagnat Leadership Institute, the Freshman Year Experience program, and more.
Helping students choose their path at CCHS and find their best fit colleges...
Students connect with counselors, individually and in groups and seminars, each step of the way as they choose their path at CCHS and explore careers and colleges. Our Counseling Office walks students through the college application process as they determine their best fit colleges and universities across the country and internationally, often earning scholarships to make their choice more affordable.
As we build a more inclusive and equitable community...
Central Catholic prides itself on offering a welcoming, respectful, and safe environment where students can explore and develop their unique identities and talents while appreciating the identities and talents of others. Through our Mission and our Declaration of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, we are called to follow Jesus’ example of love as we build a more inclusive and equitable community and world.
This unique combination of opportunities gives every CCHS student a safe place to reach beyond their comfort zone to become a young adult with unlimited promise.
Most importantly, the life-long values of love and compassion for one another remains the foundation of Central’s family spirit.
