For decades Manistee Catholic Central has been blessed with the opportunity to provide our students with a comprehensive education based on Christian values and academic excellence in a family-oriented, Christ-centered environment.
Through our faith-based education, mass, prayer and retreats, school and community service opportunities, our mission is to prepare students for a successful and fulfilling future.
Curriculum with Faith Included
Through the study of the Catholic faith and the Gospel message, MCC students celebrate God's love, develop a personal relationship with the Lord, and become active members of the Catholic community.
Our students learn:
The Catholic doctrine
Prayers and Catholic traditions
Attend faith-based retreats
Engage in community service
During the 2019-2020 school year, we are implementing a new program called Virtues in Practice for all students kindergarten through 11th grade. Click here to learn more information.
Mass, Prayers, Retreats
Elementary school students pray in the classroom daily and attend Mass weekly. Special events include May Crowning, penance services, Advent and Lenten Services. Middle school and high school students begin the day in our school chapel with a prayer service and scripture readings, attend weekly Mass, participate in Religion classes, pray the Rosary together, and organize weekly Stations of the Cross during Lent. Students in grades 6-12 make yearly retreats with their classmates.
Our students have the opportunity to attend the The National Catholic Youth Conference
which is a powerful, biennial, three-day experience of prayer, community, and empowerment for Catholic teenagers (of high school age) and their adult chaperones. Every other year, students have the opportunity to travel to Indianapolis, where more than 23,000 young people and their chaperones attended as a catalyst for spiritual growth and wisdom.
Learning to serve God through serving others is an important part of life in Manistee Catholic Central School. High school students serve their school, parishes, and community agencies through their religion classes.
