Enrollment for the 2019-2020 School Year

If you are interested in your child or grandchild attending a Catholic school, now is the time to visit CCC to learn about the process.  Please call our office at 502-424-9398 to get more information or to schedule an appointment.

Participation in the CCC Program is based on the following criteria:

  • Living in any of the West End neighborhoods (zip codes of 40203,40210,40211,40212)
  • Enrolling in the program before a child enters 6th grade

Even if you don’t fit the criteria above, feel free to give us a call.  We have several partners in the area who may be able to help.


The Growth Continues

As many visitors to the CCC webpage will see, many months have passed since our last post.  The biggest reason for that is success in the program!  By the beginning of 2019, over 80 students are attending Louisville Catholic schools through their involvement with Community Catholic Center.

As a quick update, five part-time staff members work with over 50 families in the program.  In addition to attending meetings and conferences at schools, CCC staff members assist families and students through tutoring and counseling services.  CCC continues its commitment to education by providing psycho-educational testing for students.  This testing helps both the family and the school to better understand how each child learns.

As we look to the 2019-2020 school year, we plan on another record year of new students to Louisville Catholic schools.

CCC Annual Spring Reception a Success!

The CCC Annual Spring Reception was again a wonderful evening for supporters to gather and to learn more about the students and the mission.  This year Tom and Shelley Perrone hosted over 150 people in their home in April.  A highlight of the evening was the speech delivered by a CCC student who attends Presentation Academy.  Her heart-felt message assured guests that their support was going toward a worthy endeavor.

What I appreciate most about my Catholic Education is that both schools (Notre Dame and Presentation Academy) have made me feel more than a student; I felt like I belonged there. I was able to grow in my academics with the rigorous curriculum as well as in faith. It has helped me achieve more than just an education. It has opened me to opportunities you cannot get elsewhere.”

CCC is on Track for a Record Year!

As more families learn that attending a Catholic school is possible for their children, more families are coming to CCC.  As we planned, CCC now assists over 80 students for the current school year.  The plan also includes a goal of assisting over 100 students by this fall–the 2017-2018 school year.

By mid-March, not only have almost all current students re-applied for scholarships but a record amount of 12 new students have completed the FACTS Scholarship Application.  CCC will continue to meet with new families through the spring and early summer so we are assured that CCC will meet its goal of assisting over 100 students this fall.

Thanks to the many donors and supporters who make our work possible!

CCC Kicks off School Year with Picnic

On Sunday, August 9th, CCC families, students, mentors, and many others gathered at the Good Shepherd/Lehmann Hall to welcome the new school year.  Guests enjoyed three-legged races, a water balloon toss, and a kickball games before going inside to have a picnic dinner.  Following dinner, students received new backpacks filled with school supplies that were supplied by parishioners at Holy Spirit Catholic Church.  Over 60 students will begin this school year participating through CCC.
