Ways to Give to Central Catholic High School
Through The Fund for Central Catholic, we are able to fulfill our commitment to making an outstanding Catholic education affordable and accessible to every student who seeks it. The actual cost of educating a young man or woman for the year is more than the affiliated tuition charged. Contributions to the Fund for Central Catholic help make up the difference and represent the generosity of the entire Central Catholic community. In addition to providing tuition support, these monies help meet the ongoing expenses of operating and maintaining the high school.
Central Catholic recognizes the following giving levels:
The Saints Leadership Society
Elizabeth Ann Seton Society $10,000 +
Pope John Paul II Society $5,000 - $9,999
Mother Teresa Society $2,500 - $4,999
