Frequently Asked Questions
We all have questions from time to time. We’ve put together the most frequently asked questions by parents. Additional information is provided in the student handbook found in the student and parent quick links on the Home page. Of course, if you can’t find the answers you need, please do not hesitate to contact us.
We adopted a dress code to provide Central Catholic with its own unique identity within the community, and to serve as a means to instill pride and unity within our school. We will contact the parents of students who dress inappropriately. Acceptable attire includes:
- Bottoms in khaki or navy blue. This includes shorts, skirts, skorts, pants and capri pants.
- Solid color, collared polo tops in white, navy, gray or royal blue. This includes short-sleeved or long-sleeved polos.
- Crusader Fridays allow for school activity t-shirts, sweatshirts or hoodies to be worn with the uniform bottoms.
For restrictions and specifics, please refer to the student dress code letter found in the student and parent quick links on the Home page.
We allow certain privileges for our senior class to help these students learn to budget their time both in and out of school, to enhance their educational and/or employment opportunities, and to develop self-discipline and responsibility. Senior privileges include the use of a “senior lounge” and open campus. We require parental approval if a student wishes to participate in open campus privileges.
