INTERNATIONAL STUDENT PROGRAM

Allentown Central Catholic High School is fortunate to welcome and share culture with students from many countries across the globe. Over the last decade, we have experienced an ever-increasing desire of students to join our community, which has led us to further develop our International Program. International students have been successful in our school and have become full, active participants in our community — both academically and socially.
