Philosophy

Central Private seeks to provide the opportunity for students to grow and develop their capabilities to the highest degree. Our comprehensive college-preparatory program is designed for students to develop skills and attributes that will well equip them not only for college, but also for a successful life, based on Christian principles. Students receive a balanced program providing them with strong spiritual, intellectual, physical, emotional and social development. Central maintains a Christian faculty, staff, and administration dedicated to developing the individual potential of all students in keeping with the philosophy of the school.

CP's tradition of excellence is supported by a full college-preparatory curriculum; a low pupil/teacher ratio; separate gymnasiums, libraries, and computer labs for the elementary and middle/high schools; athletic programs for both boys and girls; and an after-school care program.
