Clearwater Central Catholic High School Recognizes the Needs of International Students

Coming to a high school in a foreign country can be a daunting experience for any teenager.  To ease the transition, CCCHS provides several programs designed especially for international students.  During the school year, CCCHS offers ESL (English as a Second Language) which includes skills development.

We also provide opportunities for international students to better make a smooth transition to our high school through our NiHao International Program.  This club provides social opportunities and activities outside of the classroom.
