About Central Catholic
Dear Parents and Future Ironmen,
Welcome to the website for Cleveland Central Catholic High School – Home of the Ironmen!
At Central Catholic our mission is to challenge and encourage students in our care to excel academically, to nurture an environment that helps each person to deepen their faith in God, and to live a life of service so our students may face the future with confidence and hope.
Cleveland Central Catholic is a co-educational, comprehensive school for students in grades 9 through 12. With an enrollment of about 540 students, CCC is both large enough to provide opportunities for student activities and small enough for students to be known by name. Our school offers a wide variety of activities (athletics, music, community service, yearbook and newspaper clubs, etc.) that provide our students with opportunities to develop skills and make friends for life.
At Central Catholic, we are one family in Christ that celebrates the diversity of our students and faculty. We work together to foster a culture that respects human dignity, develops personal responsibility, and provides opportunities for our students to learn, serve and lead. We strive to develop our students into young adults by the time they graduate by challenging them to put their faith into action and live the Gospel message.
Our faculty is committed to teaching and learning on a personal level. Our comprehensive academic program is truly for all students, whether they desire the challenge of an honors program, have special learning needs, or are somewhere in between. Our graduates are prepared to succeed in life. 99.2% of the class of 2020 earned their diploma and more than 86% of the students were accepted into either a 2 or 4-year college or university.
Over the past decade, Cleveland Central Catholic, in conjunction with the Diocese of Cleveland, corporate partners, foundations and donors have made significant, noticeable improvements to our campus. Our school building is secure, climate controlled and we enjoy the benefits of having access to both the St. Stan’s Social Center and Stefanski Stadium, both located on our campus. We are most grateful to the many people who have helped us achieve so much in the past and especially to those who are continuing to help secure our future.
Cleveland Central Catholic will continue working to tell our story, celebrate our successes and give thanks for the many blessings our school has and will receive to secure the future for our students, our neighborhood, our city, and our Diocese.
God bless and Go Ironmen!
