Philosophy Of Cleveland Central Catholic High School

We believe a catholic school is a Christian community, grounded in the Catholic faith and Christ's mandate to proclaim the Gospel.

  •    A Christian community is a group of people of diverse backgrounds joined in purpose, hope, and love and who seek to share with others their experiences and lives.
  •    The family is the primary teacher and an essential partner in student formation.
  •    All students can learn. Educators provide the appropriate instructional activities, a nurturing environment, and     a comprehensive curriculum so that all students learn.
  •    Education is a process of holistic development, strengthening and enriching each person’s unique gifts and         talents to grow spiritually, develop academically and physically, and mature personally.
  •    Education in a diverse community offers unique opportunities. It inspires justice, compassion, respect for the       dignity of others, and an appreciation for and celebration of differences.
  •    All people are called to the service of others for their own good and in response to Christ’s call to “love one        another as I have loved you.”
