Our mission is to challenge and encourage our students to excel academically, to deepen their faith in God, and to live a life of service, so they may face the future with confidence and hope.

Cleveland Central Catholic welcomes a vital and ever-changing student into a Catholic Christian community where:

  • Differences provide unique opportunities for growth and positive change;
  • An excellent and innovative education creates a hope-filled future;
  • Enduring religious, social, and cultural values are translated into contemporary strategies for successfully navigating life in the 21st century.

Our Core Values:

  • Commitment: Cherishing commitment and fortified by faith, we invest our energies to become responsible persons.
  • Courage: Embracing challenges as opportunities, we move forward with confidence and integrity.
  • Creativity: Valuing innovation, we encourage imagination to prepare for a changing global community.
  • Hope: Relying on God’s goodness, we inspire a vision of a better life.
  • Service: Embracing the spirit of Jesus, we reach beyond ourselves in love in response to the needs of others.

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.”
