“My time at CC was incredibly formative. The CC community and Basilian Fathers were extremely influential in fostering my deeply rooted faith and interest in social policy. I learned a great deal about integrity and Discipline under Coach Magni as a member of CC’s cross country and track & field teams. The work ethic and fortitude instilled by Coach Magni have served me well throughout my professional career. I also developed friendships at CC that have stood the test of time.”

Favorite memory: Competing alongside my cross country teammates.
“Teach Me Goodness, Discipline, and Knowledge” is the motto of the Basilian Fathers and the sacred mission of Catholic Central High School. For ninety years, the graduates of Catholic Central have made a positive impact locally, nationally, and around the world.
