Central Catholic Jr.-Sr. High School - Grades 7-12

Central Catholic Jr.-Sr. High School, also known as CC, is home to nearly 450 students grades 7 - 12 and is located on 9th Street on the south side of Lafayette. Founded in 1956 on strong Catholic values and beliefs, CC is an accredited, Indiana A-rated school with a local Core Curriculum Guide that is outlined by the Diocese-of-Lafayette in North Central Indiana.
Our students can earn college credit by taking AP and/or Indiana University-Advanced College Project dual credit courses when they meet/exceed predetermined cut scores. In addition, we collaborate with the Purdue Outreach Program, Ivy Technical College’s Double Up Program, Indiana University Advanced College Project, and Lafayette Jefferson High School to ensure that we have a relevant and academically rigorous curriculum.
Student Body Stats
CC is one of two Catholic high schools in the diocese and draws most of its students from the six local parishes, although some students come from parishes outside of the county. While the vast majority of our 447 students come to CC in seventh grade from our Catholic sixth grades at St. Boniface and St. Lawrence, a number of students come to our school from other private and public schools in the area. These parents and their students see CC's 100 percent graduation rate, the near 90 percent rate of graduates heading to four year universities and they ultimately see the successes of our students spiritually, intellectually, physically, and socially, which leads them to become Knights! 
School Choice
We are fortunate enough to be located in an innovative school choice state, which for more than a decade has provided thousands of dollars per child, per year in tuition assistance for families who qualify. In the spring of 2021, the Indiana Choice Scholarship Program was expanded to cover approximately 80 percent of Hoosier families - helping parents afford the outstanding Catholic education they want for their children. Lafayette Catholic Schools also have a myriad of scholarships available for Central Catholic students. Nearly 70 percent of Lafayette Catholic School families receive tuition assistance and scholarships every year.
