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 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.


Two Former Principals Join Community Catholic Center Staff

Community Catholic Center has hired Carol Meirose as the Director of Elementary Education and Becky Henle as the Director of Secondary Education.

Meirose recently retired as the principal of St. Agnes School and has worked in Catholic elementary education for most of her career.  She will assist CCC students enrolled in Pre-Kindergarten through 5th grades.

Henle most recently served as the principal of Assumption High School. She will work with CCC students enrolled in grades 6-12 both in academic work as well as post-high school planning.

CCC Board Chair Chuck Willenbrink commented, “Community Catholic Center is fortunate to have two educators who are so well-respected joining our staff.”

In this academic year, 50 students are enrolled in CCC’s program – 40 elementary students and 10 high school students.  CCC students attend Notre Dame Academy, St. Leonard School, St. James School, and St. Anthony School in Clarksville on the elementary level.  Current CCC high school students attend Holy Cross High School, Trinity High School, and Presentation Academy.

In addition to providing educational, financial, and family support for families, CCC involves its members in family enrichment activities, after-school tutoring, summer educational programs, and community service projects.
