State of the School 2012

Th ank you for being a part of the Central Catholic family! As we begin

a new semester, new calendar year and new season of registration, it is

a good time to refl ect on where we have been and where we are going.

Many of our families recently took part in the CCHS Satisfaction

Update asking the questions: “How likely is it that you would recommend

Central Catholic High School to a family member, friend or colleague?”

I am happy to report that once again our score is at the top of

the range for parochial school according to benchmarks given by the

diocese. Th is confi rms to me that the state of our school remains strong.

Parents shared that they appreciated the “structured environment,” and

“the teachers, who are willing to put in extra time to review lessons and

help students.” Another parent commented that “I am proud to send

my children to CCHS and recommend the school to all parents.” I am

encouraged by these comments and will continue to work hard to make

sure all parents have this same pride and willingness to promote CCHS.

Also, as we requested, parents shared their concerns or reasons they

might not recommend CCHS to friends, family and colleagues. I appreciate

the feedback from all parents who took part in the update

because only with accurate and complete information can we truly

achieve success. A couple of the concerns parents voiced, I wish to address

in this letter.

As is the case when we do any of these updates, tuition is the number

one reason parents are reluctant to recommend CCHS to other families.

Still, it is clear that parents continue to recognize the immeasurable

value of a Catholic education for their students. Please know that everyone

at Central Catholic understands and appreciates the sacrifi ces you

make to give your sons and daughters a Catholic education.

Knowing that times are tight and increasing tuition is making it increasingly

unfeasible for families to fi nance their student’s education,

our fi nance council, partner parishes and school leadership are working

together within diocesan parameters to make CCHS aff ordable for

families. A heartfelt thank you to those who were able to participate in

the Together in the Work of the Lord campaign which will reduce our

building debt. As the costs of running a school continue to increase

every year, we are constantly working to ensure the appropriate mix of

Advancing the Mission

In Malcolm Gladwell’s book, Outliers, he recounts how Bill Gates’ success

is a result of not only his work ethic and ingenuity, but also a concerted

eff ort by parents in a private high school to provide the very best

for their children. Gates, at thirteen, was able to spend countless hours

working on a time-sharing computer, a rarity in 1968, through his

school’s computer club. Th is technology was available because a group

of parents came together, held a rummage sale which earned a few thousand

dollars, and bought the best technology of the age to give their

children the very best opportunities. Little did these parents know, the

support of their kids’ school in 1968 would transform the world.

I relay this story to show that your support of your school - your desire

to give your children the very best opportunities - may have signifi cance

far beyond what you immediately see. Moreover, the opportunities you

off er your children with a Central Catholic education have a greater

Vol: 19 | Iss: 3 | Jan/Feb 2012

revenue to help CCHS remain at a sustainable enrollment. With only

three primary sources of funding – tuition, parish subsidies and advancement

income – it is important that we do not overly burden any

one revenue source with the cost of education.

Th at being said, scholarship resources are available. If you know of a

family where fi nance may be a concern or you know of anyone considering

leaving the Catholic school system because of tuition, please have

them give me a call so we can fully discuss all of the options available.

A few parents also commented that they felt CCHS was not as welcoming

as they anticipated. Th is is very disheartening for me. CCHS

is fi rst and foremost a community in Christ and a family in faith. We

strive to show that our unity in Christ is inclusive and welcomes new

families whether they are from down the street or across the sea. I will

welcome input and ideas to address this concern.

In particular, for students, we have launched a new student orientation

program and mentor program. Th rough the mentor program, upperclassmen

are able to off er advice from a student’s perspective. Also,

Catholic Schools Week is approaching. My prayer is that this week will

truly refl ect the unity within our school and among all of our Catholic

schools in the community. Th is is also a time for us to help all Christians

value a school where Christ is ever-present.

For parents, we have various volunteer opportunities and ways to get involved

in CCHS. Some great ways to be a part of the community are to

participate in the annual auction gala, Saints Alive, and the many other

athletic, fi ne arts and fundraising volunteer opportunities. If you would

like to get more involved at CCHS, please come see me or contact the

advancement offi ce.

While we constantly work to improve CCHS and to make it the best education

option for parents in McLean County, we remain proud of our

strong traditions and our bright future. Th ank you for being a part of the

Central Catholic community where Our Diff erence Is Our Strength.

Blessings,

value and more of an imperishable impact than any fi nancial gain. You

give you student a head start in adulthood as a Saint.

An illustrative example: one of our Saints who recently graduated

never liked theology class, struggled with her faith in high school and

rebelled against the structure and rules of Central Catholic for all four

years. When she came back for homecoming aft er life away at college

she told one of our theology teachers, “I was really surprised how much

I had to defend my faith in college – and I go to a Catholic college!

I’m so glad I had apologetics my senior year. I had to come back home

and get my notebook so I can look back at my notes. I got involved in a

bible study on campus and hope to lead one next year.” And the Saints

go marching on…

From the Chaplain

As we begin a new semester, we are quickly approaching the celebration

of Catholic Schools Week. Th is year it will be from January 30th

February 3rd. As we approach that week, I remember all the opportunities

that I had growing up because my parents sent me to a Catholic

grade school and high school. I remember the opportunities we had for

Mass, confessions and growing in the spiritual life. I remember praying

in class and as a school. I remember studying my faith in religion class

and learning to defend it. And I know that it prepared me for the rigors

of college, work and then the seminary.

Only in a Catholic school do students learn about their Catholicism on

a daily basis. Only in a Catholic school are Mass, Confessions, and Eucharistic

Adoration integrated into the schedule. Th ank you to all who

support our mission and keep the tradition alive. May this week lead

others to recognize the value of a Catholic education. Catholic schools

do make a diff erence in the lives of our students and in the life of our

society. To be daily immersed in Catholic prayer, thought, and philoso-

phy forms a student without them even knowing it. Whereas I know

that not every student necessarily accepts the message of Catholicism,

studies show that students who attend Catholic schools are more apt to

attend Mass and practice their faith as adults.

I wanted to take this opportunity approaching Catholic School’s Week

to thank you all, whether you support Central Catholic as a benefactor

or as a parent of one of our students. May God continue to bless Central

Catholic High School and all of our Catholic schools. May they lead us

in our knowledge of this world and in the world to come. May God

continue to bless our eff orts to help all children of Catholic Schools

to know, love and serve God in this life and be with Him in the next.

May the Lord continue to bless our eff orts to do His will.

for those eligible until funds are depleted.

PSAT Results

Sophomores and Juniors who took the PSAT (Pre-Scholastic Achievement Test) will receive their reports

in Th eology and English classes the week of January 9th. Students are strongly encouraged to use My College

Quick Start, a new service provided by PSAT. Th is feature allows students to gather college and career

information relevant to their interests. Students will be asked to bring the results of their My College Quick

Start with them to their course scheduling sessions with their guidance counselors.

PLAN Results

Sophomores who took the PLAN Test (a practice ACT college admissions test) will receive their results in

English classes the week of January 9. Th is test is an excellent predictor of future ACT scores. Results from

this test can be very helpful when considering future college choices, and the need for possible ACT prep

classes. Th ese results will be used for sophomores when scheduling for their junior year classes with their

guidance counselors.

ACT Registration

Th e next ACT test date is February 11. Th e deadline to register is January 13. Go to Counselors’ Corner on

the Central Catholic Website, and click on the ACT tab. Th is will direct you to the ACT registration website,

and other valuable ACT prep information. Future ACT dates are also available at that website location.

NCAA Registration

Does your son or daughter plan to participate in college athletics in the future at a Division I or II school?

If so, be sure to check out the NCAA information on the CCHS website under the Counselors’ Corner or

Athletics tabs. Students need to register at the beginning of their junior year with the NCAA if they have

college sports in their future.

Heartland Community College Courses off ered at Central Catholic

Our juniors and seniors at Central Catholic High School have the opportunity to take a number of courses

for dual credit (high school and college credit earned). Guidance Counselors will be talking with sophomores

and juniors over the next few weeks regarding those opportunities. Families should always be certain

to check with their prospective colleges to make certain that they will accept college credits earned while

the student is in high school. Most colleges will, but there are a few who will not accept the credit. Course

descriptions for these classes will be listed on the CCHS website under Counselors’ Corner, and the HCC

at CCHS tab.

Saints Alive 2012

WHAT IS SAINTS ALIVE?

This event is a major fundraiser for Central Catholic High School.

The proceeds from Saints Alive and our gift gatherings help keep

tuition affordable for our families, keep faculty salaries competitive,

and help maintain our current facilities.

WHEN IS SAINTS ALIVE?

The 23rd Annual Saints Alive dinner auction will be held on Saturday,

April 21, 2012, at the Marriott Hotel and Conference Center

in Normal. This year’s theme will be Star Spangled Saints.

Reservations include appetizers, a beautifully catered gourmet

dinner with wine, the chance to bid on hundreds of silent and live

auction items and some surprises!

HOW ARE AUCTION ITEMS PROCURRED?

Parents, friends and alumni donate items, services and cash.

We are always open to new ideas and to new people with innovative

ways to gather gifts. Many items and cash are donated

by area merchants and businesses. We, in turn, ask that you

frequent these businesses and thank them for their support. Our

procurement committee is always looking for volunteers who are

willing to contact businesses in the area. If you would be willing

to do this, please phone Kim Fox at kfox@blmcchs.org

WHAT SHOULD GUESTS WEAR?

The atmosphere for Saints Alive is festive! Wear your most patriotic

outfi t! Service members will be in uniform. Saints Alive dress

ranges from thematic costumes to party dresses and suits/sport

coats. Come as you are and ready for great night!

AS A PARENT, WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP?

Volunteer and join our efforts to get to know each other better

while we fi nancially support our school. We can assure you of

new friendships, fun and a sense of satisfaction as a part of this

worthwhile project. Become a Saints Alive Patron by making a

gift to ensure the event’s success. Your gifts can make a difference!

It would be great to see every CCHS family’s name listed

in the catalogue!!
