Welcome to the online home of Grand Island Central Catholic School. Located in Grand Island, Nebraska, we invite you to visit these pages and learn what we’re all about; and we think you’ll agree, we are committed to, and we produce excellence. The proof is in our students! Founded in 1956, we are proud to be one of the top college prep schools in Central Nebraska.
We offer a Catholic faith-based education in which students participate in weekly Mass as well as explore their faith within theology classes. We welcome students of all faiths to join together with us. Central Catholic is committed to excellence in academic achievement, Christian values formation, athletics, fine arts, and community service. Above all, we are dedicated to producing well-rounded individuals who will become the strong community leaders of tomorrow.
Grand Island is the fourth largest city in Nebraska. We are grateful to enjoy an outstanding quality of life due to a diverse range of opportunities. As a top-ranked Christian middle school and Christian high school in Nebraska, we are honored to be a part of Grand Island’s rich heritage and to continue the tradition of excellence as we educate the leaders of tomorrow.
The month of March is upon us at GICC. We are nearing the end of the third quarter on March 13, and that day will be a 12:00 p.m. dismissal for the students. We recently had our Open House and Information Day for any prospective new students and their parents. If you missed this opportunity, no problem. Simply stop by the office and pick up an information packet, and we will gladly help you with any questions that you may have. If you attended the information day and have additional questions, no problem. Give us a call or stop by, and we will help you in any way we can. One of the questions I have been asked regards tuition and the availability of assistance for families who may need help. My answer is yes. We work very hard in this area whenever possible to help students attend our school. Again, if you have questions, please call.
If you were unable to attend Parent/Teacher Conferences I strongly encourage you to contact your student's teachers if you have any questions or concerns whatsoever. Even if you believe it's not a big concern, we take all concerns seriously, and we will address them. Our goal is to help every student achieve the highest level of success. We need your help to make this happen.
As usual, we have an abundance of activities. Please look closely at the school calendar that has been mailed to you so you can mark your calendars for activities you choose to attend. One activity I encourage everyone to attend is our final major fundraiser which is the annual Karnival Kapers on Sunday, March 23. As usual, there will be a wide variety of activities to participate in and plenty of good food to eat. Just a reminder, we do not have school on March 17 as we are hosting district speech in our building that day.
In closing I would like to again take this opportunity to thank all the students, staff, parents, and the numerous volunteers for making our activities at Central Catholic successful. We have had some wonderful things take place at and for our school, and you make this possible.
Thank you for your time and consideration, and make it a great rest of your day!
