Be More Than A Spectator

At Central you can stand out in front of a roaring crowd and compete for the Dutch in one of our 21 varsity athletics teams or create beauty and express yourself in the fine arts ... or both!

Our coaches, directors and leaders know you’re a student first and are willing to work with you to make sure you can still make it to rehearsal after a team workout and still find time to get your homework done.

It’s uncommon to be able to be involved in the arts and athletics, or be involved in multiple organizations within both areas, in lots of places. But here, we encourage you to explore and express yourself through all the outlets you want! Have we mentioned the Central family is pretty amazing?
