Preparing for College

At Central Catholic, we realize that students have many choices about their future; however, over 97% of our students will attend a two- or four-year college or university. Central Catholic is committed to providing its student body with ample resources to aid in the college selection process:
  • Students work with counselors to create an individualized four-year plan.
  • Full-time College Counselors Nanette Martin and Kirby Henningsen work directly with students and families.
  • Students and families receive information and are encouraged to attend many college planning events.
  • A monthly college planning newsletter is sent to all junior families beginning in December and all senior families throughout the year.

In August, 75 rising seniors took a summer school course designed to get them started on the Common Application. The Common App is an undergraduate college admission application that students may use to apply to more than 700 different colleges and universities. Students worked with our two college counselors to get started, they also began writing college application essays with a member of our English Department, and prepared to request letters of recommendation. Way to go Rams!
