    • Once we receive your online deposit, we begin to build out your class options.

    • Your course options will be available in your parent myCC account, and you must "save" your selections to submit them to your couselor.

  • HEALTH FORMS - DUE JULY 15

    • You can find all of the required health forms on your parent myCC account resources tab. Look for the "Magnus Health" tile.
    • Each student must have a current health record on file with the physical exam completed after April 15.
    • Your child’s health information will be recorded online, through the management system of Magnus Health SMR (Student Medical Record).
    • There are many benefits to maintaining student medical information on an online database system; i.e., less paperwork for parents to complete each year and having more accurate information that is accessible to parents and the appropriate employees at our school. As this is a web-based system, you will have continuous access to your child’s health record as well as the ability to make updates when needed.
    • Submitting the required forms listed below by July 15 is vital in making preparations before the first day of school.  The law states that if any student’s current health record is not on file, we may not allow him to attend classes or participate in any sport.
      • Conditional Questions
      • Vital Health Record
      • MHSAA Physical Form
      • Immunization Record
      • Concussion Awareness Acknowledgement Form
      • Over-the-Counter Medication Form
      • Prescription Medication Form

    • Fall Sports:
      • Students planning to participate in a fall sport (cross country, football, soccer, tennis) must have their completed health forms on file by Thursday, July 15; otherwise, they will not be allowed to participate in any weight conditioning, tryouts or practices.
  • Community Service Hours

    • All students at Catholic Central are required to complete service hours, and they are logged in our X2Volv account, which they will receive in August. Full details and instructions will be given to students in August when school begins.
    • In the meantime, if your son wants to get a head start on service hours, he should keep track of the following:
      • Name of the Agency, organization, or place of service
      • Date(s) of volunteer work
      • Number of hours served
      • Contact information of the person at the agency or organization who can verify his service hours.
        • Usually people provide their email address. Once your son logs in his service hours, X2Vol generates an email link asking that person to verify his service. If that person opts out of providing his/her email, they can sign a piece of paper with the information above, and your son can take a picture of it with his phone.  When he logs in his service hours onto his X2Vol account, he can merely upload the picture with his service submission.
    • Any questions can be directed to our Campus Minister, Mr. Kevin Walters, at kwalters@catholiccentral.net 
  • Dress Code

    • You will receive a full student-parent handbook towards the start of the year that contains all rules/regulations
