Central Catholic High School is a private, Catholic school for girls and boys in grades seven through 12. The school has a lay faculty and is under the supervision of the Office of Catholic Schools of the Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux. Now in its 53rd year, Central Catholic carries forward the tradition of Catholic education begun by its predecessor Sacred Heart Academy since 1893.
The school population is a cross section of the area it serves, the students embracing a wide economic and intellectual range. Central Catholic High School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students of the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its education policies, admissions policies, scholarship and financial aid programs, and athletics and other school-administered programs. As facilities are limited, acceptance cannot be guaranteed to all who apply.
Through a broad, college-preparatory curriculum, Central Catholic attempts to meet the variety of interests, needs and abilities of the young women and men who are accepted.
Central Catholic High School is governed by the Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux and approved by the Louisiana State Board of Elementary and Secondary Education. The school is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and is a member of the National Catholic Education Association, the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development, the National Association of Secondary School Principals, the Council on Exceptional Children, the International Dyslexia Association, and the Louisiana Athletic Association. The Central Catholic High School Advisory Council offers input for finances, facilities and parental concerns to foster a collaboration between parents, community and school.
