Guidance Office

The aim of guidance is to enable each student to understand his abilities, interests and personality traits, to develop them as well as possible, and to relate them to his life goals. Counselors also establish a state of mature self-guidance as they encourage and aid the student to make wise decisions, and many times becoming sounding boards for any personal problems he may encounter.

The Guidance Department at Catholic Central plays an important role in assisting students in their various needs and helping them to achieve their goals.

  • Summer School

    A student who fails the first semester of a full-year course but successfully completes the second semester will be given a full unit of credit. The student will receive a D- in place of the failing grade received in the first semester. 

    The failure of two subjects will mean that the student is not entitled to return to Catholic Central in the following academic semester. 

    A student who fails any course must make up the course in a Summer School program before the beginning of the following academic year. He may not repeat the course during the regular term at Catholic Central. The summer school grade will appear on the student's transcript, and the average of both grades will replace the failing mark. Failure of a Theology class requires that the deficiency be made up during Summer School. An individual project assigned by the Director of Theology must be completed during the Summer School term. 

    If a student chooses to attend Summer School to upgrade a final mark received on his report card, the Summer School grade will appear on the student's transcript. The average of both grades will replace the original grade, which will be computed in his cumulative grade point average. 

    Enrichment courses (any course not offered by Catholic Central) will appear on the student's transcript but will not be computed in his cumulative grade point average. At the end of each semester, those students failing to reach a C- average minimum will be placed on academic probation. Students who fail to maintain a C- average for each year will be asked not to return.
