Service

Catholic Central High School challenges students to live their faith and work for justice in society. As a school community, we witness to the Word of God by putting our faith into action. Our hope is to promote service learning that is transformative for the student, emphasizing quality of service and reflection.

Shamrocks serve others. In fact, Catholic Central students average nearly 35,000 hours of community service per school year. 

Each year, students complete service hours  in the larger community as a part of their Christian Service Project. By graduation, each student has completed a minimum of over 65 hours in service.


 

Students donate an average of $20,000 per year to the Basilian Missions in Mexico, Columbia, and Detroit. 

Through small fundraisers such as the annual Food Drive, Toys For Tots, and daily collections, CC students are taught the importance of fostering love and respect for others. 

CC also raises money for Make-A-Wish of Michigan in the annual 1.5 mile Shamrock Shuffle held during Boys' Bowl Weekend.

Since this tradition began in 1997, Shamrocks have donated more than $198,000 towards granting wishes. 

During Boys' Bowl Weekend, Shamrocks participate in the Shamrock Shuffle for Make-A-Wish Foundation

Another Day Resource Center

Another Day Resource Center was birthed out of a desire to meet the needs of those around us in practical ways – from a Christ-centered perspective. This is done through teaching, outreach, education and services. One of our outreaches is our Born To Be A Blessing, street ministry. Every time we go out we will pass out at least 100 lunches, hygiene kits, clothing and bibles to anyone in need that cross paths with our bus. This is a great way for the students to get involved. Although it wouldn’t be the first time. We love partnering. with your students.
