    I graduated from Central about 10 years. Central did a great job preparing me for both undergrad and professional schools. While Central may not have as many course options as some of the large public schools I didn't miss a beat in college and had a good chunk of college credit through AP classes. There is also something to say about knowing all your classmates rather than never knowing some people you go to school with. I still talk to my central friends on a regular basis even though we are all living in different cities across the country. I would send my kids there in a second no matter which school district I live in.

    More students could be here if there was a better administration. The current one has been in place for over 30 years.

    After looking over the current reviews I have noticed that the only people that ever speak badly of the school are former students who never paid attention in class and blame others for their failures. Yes CCHS is a private school. There is some money so there will be drugs social clicks and politics within the system. However these senarios present themselves in the public schools in the surrounding area as well. I attended CCHS coming from a hardworking middle class family and believe that the money invested by my parents was well spent. The cost of the school is cheap considering if you look at any other private schools in Northeast Ohio plan on spending $10K or more for tuition. This is school were you can get your money's worth and provide a strong educational foundation for your children. I accredit that foundation as a key component to my success.

    I haven't had much of an experience in cchs yet but i'd listen more to the students than parents. I know quite a few students that go there. Educationally and athletically pretty good school. But like any high school has drugs. Also popularity is kinda important and the school is pretty expensive. So if you don't think you can aford but want a safe educational environment you and sometimes your pareents have to work some. This includes library cafeteria and for students bingo set up and it's not fun. It's not that it's a bad school. Rev. Kaylor (however you spell it) the principle is really cool. He's very helpful. So i guess it's up to you

    I am a current student/athlete of cchs. I love the environment of cchs because the teachers will set time aside of their schedule to make sure your doing well. The athletic department is amazing. Coach klinefelter has taught me alot with football and my basketball coach who has recently passed away this year helped me become a man and understand that the basketball team is a family. Cchs all around is an amazing school.

    our children received an excellent education-they are doing awesome in college thanks to the caring dependable and knowledgeable staff at CCC.

    As a Central parent and a Jackson Township resident I cannot begin to tell you how happy I am that we have enrolled our children at Central. After eight years of the supposedly elite Jackson Schools we made the move to Central three years ago. What a great environment!! It is large enough to have outstanding academics and extracurricular offerings but small enough so that your child does not become just another number. Jackson and many of the other other area public schools (especially high schools) are simply too large and a student can easily get lost. It is my feeling that the education at Central is on par with the area's best and the environment is excellent. It is an investment that I am happy to make and opportunity I am happy to provide my children.

    As a former graduate and student athlete of CCHS I give any and all prospective students the highest praise towards the high school. Central promotes a family enviroment both on the athletic field and in the class room. Central Catholic is the biggest head start you can give a child preparing for college. In my college classes I feel like I am having a review from high school in most of my classes on topics most students are learning for the first time. Central Catholic becomes more than just a building and classes it becomes a part of you in a way most people can never truly understand.

    I wasn't an athlete and am actually sort of quiet but always had a lot of individual attention from teachers in classes. My teachers did a great job of preparing me for college. I am really glad I chose Central.

    I graduated from Canton Central in 2004 and began college the next fall. Central really prepared me for college and life. I'm so happy that I went there for high school it was worth the extra money in the long run!

    I think Central is a huge waste of money. As a student who went there for a year I was met with extreme discrimination for being of a diffrent race. I think it even effected me not being on the all white cheer squad. The education isn't even that good to be spending money on. The teachers only care if you are from a dynasty family and if you are an athlete. Minoritys should stay away from this school

    Central Catholic is an excellent school academically. It is a safe atmosphere but it is not for everyone. The school mostly funds sports and little attention on the Arts. Central is ideal for an athletic and honors student with a long line of family attendance. I do not recommend the school to an artistic individual because they may not adapt well and have a difficult time adjusting. The arts program may not have the neccessary attention and expertise that student may need. One important aspect the school lacks is diversity. Every experience is different. Both the parent and student need to decide what is the best environment for that student.

    yes central catholic is a wonderful school but yes those who are gifted athleticly are treated better then those who are academicly gifted. This school is majorly based on popularity anyone who is shy or timid wont fit in teachers are awesome friends to those who are popular in the school. I love this school but its not for everyone i'd say for the strong and outgoing child who can hold there own. Its a school you have to talk in to be heard.

    I believe that sending my child to CCHS was one of the best decisions I've made. The education provided here is far superior to that which is provided in public schools. Although Central Catholic has its flaws much like any school they are nothing but small insignificant issues. My family doesn't have a history at CCHS and contrary to what someone on this site has said they did not show any type of preferential treatment to the other students who have had sibilings go there. I highly reccomend sending your child to this school it is worth the money and effort required.

    Central Catholic is a wonderful high school. As a college administrator with two sons who have graduated from Central I can attest to the school's unique qualities. These qualities include exceptional students who come from quality families that support education and Central Catholic and highly dedicated teachers and staff who create an environment of mutual respect among teachers staff students and parents. No public high school can provide the close atmosphere that exists between teachers and students; it's simply not possible given public school missions. For parents who can afford it there's no better way to invest your money.

    Central Catholic is not a good school. There are only a handful of good teachers among a majority of mediocre ones. The school is extremely political both in the academic and athletic realm. If you are from a dynasty family one with many sibling predecessors you'll recieve preferential treatment both in the classroom and on the athletic field. The school is incredibly political from the top administrators down to the athletic coaches turning the blind eye to many unacceptable behaviors by both students and teachers who are more popular or outspoken. If you live in Jackson township send your children to their public school system as their schools are great. They'll get a better education and will not have to deal with the corruption of CCHS.

    I had a bad experience at cchs. I think the students make the school so try getting some imput from the students not the parents.

    I think for the money that is costs it is an wonderful school. If a child is having problems with a subject(s) they can go to the teacher and they wil help them as much as they need. They also have a wonderful free tutoring with is done by the upper classmen. I think this is fantistic!! Rhonda Austin
