A special message from President Chris Sullivan '81 and Principal Doreen Keller....

It is has been my honor to watch the members of the Class of 2021 develop as caring young men and women over the past four years and to witness their many contributions to the Central Catholic family. They have learned what it means to be Marist and have demonstrated this in their words and actions both in school and in the greater community. Join us as we celebrate their accomplishments and wish them well in all they do. Doreen Keller, Principal of Central Catholic
