Welcome Message from the President

Dear Friends,

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about Central Catholic High School.  We are pleased to be able to share the many aspects of our academic programming, spiritual formation, innovative technology, and student life with you.  If you are a first-time visitor, I invite you to explore our web site and discover what makes a Central Catholic high school education so unique and special.

Central Catholic High School is built upon 150 years of Catholic Education.  We are a school founded on the principles of both the Marist Brothers and the Sisters of St. Joseph’s.  We are mindful of our rich history and embrace our traditions.  At the same time our students are receiving a CCHS education like no other generation before them.  We are able to address the ever-evolving needs of the 21st century student by engaging each learner with innovative methods that prepare them for their world beyond CCHS.  

I am inspired by our school community’s devotion and support.  We are blessed to have students who are enthusiastic to learn, dedicated parents who value a Catholic college preparatory education, a caring faculty and staff committed to academic excellence that is rooted in faith, and alumni that continue to support us in all we do.  

It is hard to believe that it’s been over forty years since I was a student, making my way through the halls of Central.  What wonderful memories.  I attribute so much of who I am today to those who crossed my path during my years at CCHS.  It is here that I developed a lifelong commitment to my faith. It is here where my journey to serve others through service opportunities took root.   This Gospel-based education is what separates the education that I received from the education of many of my peers.  This is the gift of a Central Catholic High School education that I am honored to be able to offer to students today in my role as President of CCHS.

In Christ,

Lawrence E. Bandi, ’72

President
