The Central Catholic Class of 2026 is finishing up their Kindergarten year. Parents, it will pass you by quickly. Just ask any of the parents of the Class of 2014. Those years in between are so special and many of us at the Lafayette Catholic School System can remember when this year’s graduating class first started in our schools. Our elementary school teachers still love to come to graduation to see those same children they helped shape, and to see just what kind of young men and women of faith they have become.
This year you won’t be disappointed. While attending the Central Catholic awards ceremony this month, I was reminded of just how fortunate we are to have such great teachers, parents and administrators. I was reminded and humbled by how that dedication has helped shape our class of 2014 over the past 13 years of their education at the LCSS.
This year’s class is very impressive. Graduates are attending prestigious universities here in Indiana and around the country Click here for a full list of universities and colleges our students were accepted. Students have received countless awards for their accomplishments in academics and service, such as the Indiana Academic All State award, Rotary Youth of the Month Award, Mayor’s Youth Council Award, and the Ryder Citizenship Award, to name a few. 80% of the class of 2014 is graduating with an Honors Diploma, we have eight students graduating with a GPA of 4.0 or higher, we have three students entering the U.S. Army, and we have one student who has received his Eagle Scout Award. Students have received an impressive amount of scholarships to the school of their choice. We have a student who received a scholarship to join a performing arts and choir program at their college. In addition, students have many athletic team and individual accomplishments. We have 8 students going on to play a sport at the collegiate level. These are just a few of the many accomplishments this class has to be proud of!
Most importantly I am proud to know our students have developed a genuine relationship with Jesus Christ, and are entering the next phase of their life more prepared to be great servant leaders. Please join me in congratulating our administrators, teachers, staff and students for another wonderful year!
