Sandusky Central Catholic School held its President’s Breakfast and State of the School address this week at Sts. Peter and Paul Gathering Space.

Following an opening invocation by Father Jeff Walker the school’s Priest Leader, City Manager Eric Wobser spoke about the connection and importance of Catholic education to the revitalization of Sandusky and the continued draw of new families to the city. With more than 150 years of quality academic excellence and its location in downtown Sandusky, guests applauded the school’s success.

Mr. Palmer’s remarks highlighted the school’s academic excellence and ACT scores, students’ ability to participate in 18 varsity sports, 27 college credits offered on campus, 100% graduation rate, 1:1 technology program for all students, and $100,000 in Scholarships awarded by the SCCS Education Foundation. 

According to Mr. Palmer, “today was a great opportunity for us to share our vision with our community.  As the oldest and best educational institution in downtown Sandusky, our past success is leading us to a very bright future. Our student enrollment continues to grow because parents are eager for their children to experience our school’s safe, family learning environment with an emphasis on faith and academic excellence.”
