Central Catholic is known for faculty members that care deeply about each student and fulfill numerous roles in helping them to grow, learn, and excel. Ms. Katelyn Andrade is just one example - she's taught in three academic departments, has coached for over 15 years (and eight championships), and moderates the Chess Club.
