Daniel O’Leary, 2018
I chose CCHS for the opportunities that are available to me here. From the production equipment, to the 3D printer, to the editing software, there is a wide variety of tools available to me within my intended field of study.
I am glad I attend CCHS because it allows me to receive one of the best educations in the Valley, while also learning more about my faith life through religion class and weekly mass. This perfect blend of traditional schooling and religious influence allows for CCHS to be a great environment of growth and learning. The first time I did play-by-play commentating for a basketball game, I realized Central was the right choice for me. I was able to get involved in video production as freshman in one of the best production high schools in America. To have access to this even as a freshman made me realize that I was a part of something special and I continued down this path through my senior year.
I would tell someone considering other schools to go ahead and look at them, but nothing will ever compare. We are a family at Central and this goes beyond the classroom. Teachers go above and beyond to make sure that we learn, not only our core classes, but also more important things about our faith life and growing as individuals. This blend of school and faith cannot be found at any public school, and it has truly left a lasting impact on me.
