Welcome to Catholic Central!

Since 1928, Detroit Catholic Central High School has been educating young men throughout Southeast Michigan under the guidance of the Basilian Fathers. Currently the largest Catholic high school in Michigan with a student body joined in Brotherhood, there is a place for every young man, no matter his background or interests.
 
We attract some of the finest Artists, Scholars, Musicians, and Athletes in Southeast Michigan. Students at CC excel in the fine arts, academic competitions, and athletics.
  • More students recognized as National Merit Scholars than any other Catholic high school in Michigan (65+ since 2010)
  • At least 6 high school music programs around the country are run by Catholic Central alumni, and about 10-15% of the student body is involved in the music department.
  • A continually growing fine arts program includes drama, cinema, and computer design in addition to traditional painting, drawing, and ceramics. An annual Fine-Arts festival highlights the accomplishments of our student-artists.
  • Our 4 Academic "Quiz Bowl" Teams have won National Championships in 2015, 2016, 2017, and 16 of the last 17 State Championships.
