Marist & Catholic
Central Catholic was founded in 1935 by Brother Florentius and the Marist Brothers of the Schools, a Roman Catholic congregation of vowed teaching brothers.
Our identity as Marists and as Catholics informs every aspect of school life.
Guided by the vision of Saint Marcellin Champagnat, we are dedicated to the education and spiritual development of the young. We are called to prepare young minds and hearts to succeed and make a difference in the world.
As Marists, we believe strongly in the importance and power of family; it’s at the very heart of the Central Catholic experience.
So much of what our alumni remember most—the abiding respect for everyone in our community, our commitment to the least favored, the dedication of our faculty, and the unbreakable bonds of friendship, can be traced directly back to the Marist tradition of family spirit.
Guided by the vision of St. Marcellin Champagnat, we are inspired to make the world a better place by serving and leading.
Marist Family Spirit distinguishes who we are and is the cornerstone of our Central Catholic community.
