Grand Island Catholic School

Crusaders
Clubs and Activities

To fulfill our mission of “producing well-rounded individuals who will become the strong community leaders of tomorrow,” we encourage students to participate in wholesome and meaningful extracurricular activities. These clubs and activities provide students with leadership opportunities, help them develop social and life skills, enhance talents, and instill a feeling of confidence.

National Honor Society

Membership in National Honor Society (NHS) is a benefit and an honor. The eligible candidate must be a sophomore, junior, or senior, have attended Central Catholic for at least one semester, and have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.250. The faculty council selects members from the eligible candidates on the basis of service, leadership, and character. The deadline for the 2018-19 school year is September 7, 2018. 

    Student Council

    As a member of the student council, students participate in democratic processes and serve as an official means for the Central Catholic student body to communicate with the administration on matters pertaining to school life. The promotion of the common good and general welfare of all students serves as the primary purpose of such councils. We hold elections for high school and middle school student council positions each spring. 

    Fine Arts Program

    For the student who wishes to learn new skills or develop and hone his or her artistic talents, we offer a variety of musical, art, drama, and journalistic opportunities.

    Spirituality

    Service Opportunities

    Students on Resurrection Mission Trip 2018Central Catholic students volunteer hundreds of hours each year to various organizations in Grand Island. Many students travel to do mission work beyond our state and even in other countries. Giving of their time and talent teaches our children that they can, and do, have a direct impact on their community and those whom they serve.
