All About
Our Faculty and Staff

Our administration and staff are dedicated to carrying out the mission of Grand Island Central Catholic School and to teach as Jesus did. We employ highly qualified teachers and staff. Nearly 40% of our staff holds advanced degrees, and our students benefit from personal, individualized instruction with a student to teacher ratio of 12 to 1.

As a Grand Island Christian school, we are here to deliver the finest education academically while allowing your child to grow spiritually. We recognize that parental involvement in a student’s education is critical to the success in achieving our goals. We welcome and encourage your input. Please do not hesitate to contact any member of our faculty or staff with questions or concerns; we are here to serve you.
