Since our founding in 1974, Central Catholic has provided a faith-filled and academically rigorous experience that forms both the mind and the heart. Our faculty and staff members work together with our hundreds of students from grades K-8 and their families to create a vibrant and thriving community.

NWEA MAP Formative Assessment
Throughout the school year, students participate in the NWEA MAP test - a formative assessment designed to inform teachers and parents how a student is progressing in Reading, Language Usage, and Math. Students take the MAP assessment three times a year - fall, winter (January) and again in the spring. This allows us to see what they have learned and how we can best help them master the standards of their grade level.
For information on the MAP Test, see the NWEA MAP Guide
Each spring, students in grades 3-8 participate in the Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress-Plus (ISTEP+) to measure proficiency towards the grade level standards. This test is the basis for the Indiana School Accountability grades. The testing window for this school year is below:
