When Central Catholic came to visit my middle school, I really liked how the students described the school. It led me to shadow and attend the open house. Shadowing was a great experience for me and I saw all the opportunities I could have, especially when it came to challenging academics.

I always had great experiences when talking to people in the community whether they were a staff or a student. Teachers seemed to genuinely want to help their students succeed and provided the resources for their students to do so.

My family legacy, starting with my grandfather, Albert Corrado, going to Central. Then succeeding him was all of my 6 Corrado uncles and their kids and my brothers. I wasn’t forced to go to Central, I had the opportunity to go elsewhere, I just didn’t want to, and I am darn glad I didn’t go anywhere else!

My experience shadowing was what drove me to come to Central. I was impressed by the teachers and really enjoyed the community. When asked why I came to Central, I attribute it to shadowing in Mr. Ward's class.
