Central Catholic's Student Wellness Series

For Students, Parents, & Educators

Central Catholic High School is committed to the emotional health and well-being of our students and families.

In an effort to promote a better understanding of where teenagers are in terms of their emotional and mental development, we periodically offer educational programs for parents and educators that complement the programs we offer to our students.

We held two programs as part of our Fall Wellness Series, and we are also offering additional programs throughout the year.
