Admission to Catholic Central

Thank you for your interest in Detroit Catholic Central!

We are always looking for good young men to enroll as students, and our Admissions Office is standing by to help with any questions you might have.

During this prolonged school closure, we are still available to speak on the phone, exchange text messages, video chat via Zoom or Google Meet, or of course answer questions through email.

It is important for us to be able to build a solid foundation for the partnership we want to build with you as your son moves through Catholic Central.
 
There is no application fee, and the entire process can be completed from your home. In light of the changes that COVID-19 has brought to our local schools, we have updated our admissions requirements for applicants for the fall of 2020.  

As we work through these challenges of virtual connection together, we look forward to meeting your familiy and helping you find what it means for your son to be a Man of Catholic Central.

List of 5 frequently asked questions.

  • Applying for Freshmen Year

      We want good young men at CC, so our application process is designed to let us get to know each applicant as well as we can.
      • Incoming 9th grade students should apply after their first marking period of 8th grade.
      • Applications are generally accepted between October and mid June for the following school year.
      • Initial acceptance decisions will be sent out on the 4th Friday in January, after which decisions will be made on a rolling basis through June.
      • Students applying for 9th grade are required to complete the High School Placement Test and the application checklist found in your myCC account.
    • High School Placement Test

      • Normally, the High School Placement Test (HSPT) is required for all incoming freshmen at Detroit Catholic Central High School. In light of the COVID-19 changes to the school calendar and ability to meet in groups, we have temporarily suspended the HSPT as a requirement for incoming freshmen. Other standardized test scores will be used in place of the HSPT for placement purposes.
    • Other Placement Tests

      • Typically we would offer additional placement tests in Math and Foreign Language to help us better place your son for the fall. In light of COVID-19, we have adjusted this process and are not offering tests for this upcoming school year. Families will meet with a counselor to discuss their options and proper placement.
    • Transfer Opportunities

      • Detroit Catholic Central High School accepts transfer students at the start of each semester, but does not accept students going into their senior year of high school unless there is a rare circumstance.
      • The academic rigor of CC is typically more demanding than other schools, so it is important that the student is placed correctly coming in. Meetings, transcripts, and course descriptions help in this effort.
      • Transfer applicants do not need to take the HSPT, but need to provide the following:
        • Current High School Transcript, with GPA above 2.5
        • Discipline and Attendance History
        • Complete Application
        • Essay about why they would like to attend CC (250-500 words)
