Cleveland Central Catholic High School is a co-educational school rooted in the Gospel values of Jesus Christ and focused on college and career readiness. 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 is a four-year private, coeducational school recognized for its strong community of faith. CCC is owned and operated by the Catholic Diocese of Cleveland. We are a culturally diverse school welcoming persons of all
education goals focus on strengthening and enriching each student’s unique
talents, encouraging them to grow spiritually, to develop academically and
physically, and to mature personally. Since 1969, CCC has been bringing young people together to learn, live and serve as one family in Christ.
CCC offers a comprehensive high school curriculum and experience. Additionally, we place strong emphasis on developing the critical life skills of executive functioning. Our students learn to effectively manage themselves so they are equipped for taking on challenges in school, work and life. With an enrollment of about 550 students, CCC is large enough to provide a quality education while also being small enough for each student to be known by name. In addition, CCC offers 10 competitive athletic programs and over 20 student clubs and activities.
CCC has a history of welcoming a diverse student body, including those with special needs Approximately 19% of our student body receives individualized special education services for cognitive or other learning disabilities. As one of the few Catholic high schools offering these specialized programs, CCC celebrates the inclusion of special education students as an integral part of our community.
The great majority of our students come from families that are underserved. A private, Catholic education is not affordable for these young men and women without the generous help of others.
In 2019, 100% of our seniors successfully graduated from CCC. Over 91% of these students were accepted into 2 or 4 year colleges, receiving scholarships in excess of $1.7 million. Many of these students are the first in their families to attend college.
