LATHAM — The Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany celebrated a unique milestone Thursday, September 15 when Bishop Edward B. Scharfenberger officially opened and blessed Catholic Central School (CCS), the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany’s first Pre-K to 12th grade school, located in Latham. The new consolidated school, a partnership between St. Ambrose School in Latham and Catholic Central High School in Lansingburgh, provides a continuum of Catholic education from Pre-K to 12th grade in one convenient location. 385 students are enrolled for the fall semester this year. 

Located on Old Loudon Rd off Exit 7, CCS will be created in phases over the next few years. 2022-2023 will be a transitional year, according to school officials. Students are currently sharing the existing 20,500-square-foot building. Wings and multiple entrances enable administrators to keep the three distinct age groups - Pre-K and kindergarten, grades 1-5, and grades 6-12 - separated and, when needed, allow for purposeful interaction and mentoring opportunities. The new school affords families the option to enroll their children at any stage of their education, accommodating the varying grade level configurations of any surrounding public or private school. For more information, please visit: or call 518-785-6453 to learn more.
