The arts are flourishing at Central Catholic, enriching the school community and enabling students to pursue their passions and develop their talents.
The Theatre Guild, one of the largest and oldest student groups on campus, stages two productions each year.
Additional fine & performing arts events include the Christmas Concert and the Visual Arts Expo and Spring Concert featuring student drawings, paintings, photography, sculptures, live student demonstrations, light food and music, and performances by the various performance groups
Outside of the classroom, students participate in a number of activities, clubs, and performance groups, including the Theatre Guild, the Concert Band, the Jazz Band, the Pep Band, Chamber Ensembles, the Liturgical Band & Chorus, the a cappella group Central Harmony, the Concert Choir, and the Dance Team. Additional arts-related clubs include ‘Visions’ Literary & Arts Magazine, the Cinema Club, the Art Club, and the Anime Club.

During the month of March, Central Catholic’s Fine & Performing Arts Department celebrated “Music in Our Schools Month.” Thank you to Mrs. Danielle Marine, Department Chair and Music Teacher/Band Director, for coordinating these efforts and for helping to make music such an important part of life at CCHS!
Visions has joined forces with the Central Catholic Band and Choir Programs to bring you a very special Christmas Coffeehouse featuring 20 performances! Join us on Tuesday, December 22 at 7:00 PM.
Art can be a difficult subject to imagine in a partially remote environment, but visual arts instructor Mrs. Lauren Roeser took the shift in stride, using the opportunity to expand her students' definition of what art is and who can be an artist.
When the 13th Annual Catwalk4Cancer, originally scheduled for March 28, was cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year's Committee refused to accept the event would not happen and produced a virtual event and video - The Red Carpet Special: Lights. Camera. Cure.
You are invited to join us virtually for the official opening of the Online Spring Art Expo at the Museum of Raider Art (MORA)! Congratulations to our student-artists!
