Central Catholic's Declaration of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Central Catholic High School seeks to uphold anti-racist practices and promote empathetic attitudes to reflect a just and inclusive community that celebrates the identities, gifts, and dignity of its members. We condemn thoughts, words, and actions that harm one’s humanity. We call each other to follow Jesus’ example of love.

We Are Marist

Guided by the vision of Saint 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.
