Central Catholic High School is investigating "Digital Learning Days" as way to advance instruction in a non-traditional way. It is our hope that in the event of inclement weather causing a school shut down, learning can continue in such a way as we will not have to add days at the end of the year. Each student has an account with Canvas, for class websites and information, and a Google account (for gmail, Google Drive, Docs, etc.)assigned to them which allow that student to participate in online activities.
The Library provides access to databases of high-quality, reliable, research resources including magazine, newspaper, and journal articles, electronic reference books (encyclopedias, dictionaries, etc). We do not have electronic textbooks. Library Databases are located HERE.
