A dream became a reality when Central Private opened its doors in September 1967. The vision to build a school for the children began over a cup of coffee between three gentlemen and resulted in the commitment of several local families to personally invest in the development of a new school campus. These families formed a non-profit corporation that was composed of seventeen board members. The board personally guaranteed to finance for the purchase of school property and the loans to construct the school buildings. When construction began, these committed families worked tirelessly to ensure that the school opened its doors for the upcoming school year. Over the years, the campus expanded to include additional classrooms, a gym, a cafeteria, a swimming pool, and a football field. We are proud of the achievements made over the past 50 years and are grateful to those founding families that gave so much to begin a legacy of faith-based education in Central.
To offer an exceptional K-12th college-preparatory education for the children in the northern region of EBR parish & surrounding parishes in a safe, nurturing, faith-based environment. Central Private supports our mission by maintaining high academic expectations, inspiring leadership through community service, and funding dedicated faculty & staff committed to excellence. Students are encouraged to pursue individual interests beyond the classroom so that they will excel as productive leaders of the community.
