Butte Central Catholic Schools


Welcome to Butte Central Catholic Schools

Faith. Family. Excellence. Tradition.

In the late 1800’s we came here in droves. Across an ocean and traveling thousands of miles by horse and wagon in search of a better life. Almost seventeen thousand students later, we are Butte Central Elementary School, Middle School, and High School. Every day we prepare for college and beyond. Everyday we learn with state-of-the-art technology, with SMART Boards and Chromebooks in every classroom, from Pre-K to high school. 80% of our students receive college scholarship assistance worth $1.5 million dollars per year, and 95% of us go on to colleges and universities across the United States and the world. But most of all, our Faith is Central to everything we do. Butte Central Catholic Schools are accredited by the Western Catholic Educational Association and dedicated to helping students grow spiritually, emotionally, socially, physically and academically.
