Central Catholic Shadow Days

Be a Knight for a day. Students applying for grades 7-12 are invited to spend a day with a CC student. Shadow students should be dropped off at the front entryway at 8:15 am where they will be greeted by our Admissions Staff. They will attend classes and see what life is like at Central Catholic. Lunch is on us! Shadow students can be picked up at the front entryway at 1 pm. 

Shadowing is not a required part of the application process, but it is a great opportunity to spend some time on our campus in the company of current students, faculty and staff, and is highly recommended.
